The Yukon Avalanche Association, formed in 2010, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting avalanche safety and awareness and facilitating the development of risk management tools for backcountry users. It is our goal to ensure that anyone using avalanche terrain is informed, aware and prepared for the risk.
Our main activities include:
- Promoting avalanche awareness with yearly outreach activities, events and information.
- Working with local companies and the Canadian Avalanche Center to ensure that courses and training are on offer in Yukon.
- Working with partners to provide avalanche risk assessment tools.
This year we successfully launched the Yukon Regional Report for the White Pass and Wheaton Valley in partnership with the Canadian Avalanche Centre. We are also working to develop terrain maps for Yukon for next season.
We continue to endeavor to increase local avalanche capacity and partner with others to make avalanche safety a priority for all backcountry users. If you have questions about training, events, information and more browse our site or get in touch.
