Your avalanche, snowpack, and weather observations are extremely valuable to the community and the avalanche forecasters at the Mount Washington Avalanche Center.


The Wilderness and Austere Medicine Program at Dartmouth Health and the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, in collaboration with the Mount Washington Avalanche Center, are conducting a survey to understand the experiences and behaviors of users in the avalanche beacon park. Your insights are invaluable to us! By participating, you'll help us enhance safety and educational programs for all who recreate in avalanche terrain. We greatly appreciate your time and contribution.
