Know Before You Go

The Utah Avalanche Center is rebuilding the Know Before You Go (KBYG) program, part of which includes creating an education progression with the goal of answering student's questions of 'where do I start' or 'what do I do next'. This infographic shows the overall process for how to approach learning about avalanches and getting outside safely. 

Know Before You Go (KBYG) is a free avalanche awareness program. Not much science, no warnings to stay out of the mountains, no formulas to memorize. In 1 hour, you can see the destructive power of avalanches, understand when and why they happen, and how you can have fun in the mountains and avoid avalanches.
