Out you go, one, two meters, and three. Then the whole mountain starts moving. Screendump from the movie.

KBYG … Know Before You Go.
Sometimes the snow looks dashing, so inviting – white, powdery, and you just cannot wait to go dancing down. But wait … this could also be the most dangerous thing you do. So many skiers have lost their lifes in such conditions.

Do you know when to back off and when it’s good to go? The Know Before You Go avalanche awareness program will get you started down the path of learning the language of the mountains and becoming a better and safer rider.

Creds to The Utah Avalanche Center who teemed up with the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, Avalanche Canada, Backcountry Access, the American Avalanche Association, the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education, the National Avalanche Center, Sherpas Cinema, Red Bull Media House, Brainfarm, and others to bring you this film. Go to kbyg.org for more information.

«It doesn’t matter if you have made thousands of good calls – all it takes is one bad call and that is one too many. Some days the mountains are screaming GET OUT OF HERE and some days they are saying come on in – it’s time to party.»
