Callahan: Thanks, Mountain Rescue Aspen!
I wanted to thank Mountain Rescue Aspen and Brian Lazar, deputy director of Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC), for their informative, free lecture regarding avalanche danger in our valley.
Every year, we needlessly lose loved ones to avalanches. Please, if you are going into the backcountry (out of bounds) skiing, boarding, hiking, and/or fat-tire biking, check the CAIC website and educate yourself on the potential avalanche dangers in the area where you plan to recreate.
The website is easy to navigate and could save your life. Once again, hats off to Mountain Rescue Aspen and all you do to keep us safe!
