If you’re hesitant to take avalanche advice from a guy skiing in jeans who can’t load a chairlift, your instincts are correct. This guy is named Dick Aspen, don’t be like Dick.
There are people like Dick out there in the real world. People who’s unearned confidence in the backcountry and phony avalanche safety training can lead to serious and unnecessary situations.
Again, don’t be a Dick. Take your avalanche training seriously and don’t ski in jeans. Please share this around so we can smite avalanche Dicks off the hills for good.
Thanks to the folks at Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center for putting these videos together. To learn more and support them go HERE.
