Ski Safety

Telluride locals are looking to make the avalanche-prone backcountry terrain in Bear Creek safer this winter by encouraging the use of radios. Bear Creek is known for its expert terrain and deadly avalanches, and the radio initiative is the brain child of Matt Steen, a Helitrax guide and former avalanche forecaster. The grassroots effort has already seen about 16-20 radios purchased so far this season. [Telluride Daily Planet]
