Avalanche Boards

Working in concert with the USFS, FOTR has built and funded a new set of avalanche advisory kiosks at Hermit Lake and the Harvard Cabin locations. These kiosks help backcountry skiers, climbers and hikers by providing updates on current snow conditions and avalanche assessment. We encourage all backcountry travelers to pay attention to these warnings and to travel with appropriate equipment and knowledge to minimize risks and to maximize your own safety preparedness. In the winter months, a beacon, probe and shovel should the part of the standard safety gear your carry in this terrain, along with the knowledge and training on how to use them.
