The new Avaluator 2.0 is the next generation of our innovative approach to avalanche safety for backcountry users. The Avaluator will help you identify and interpret the most important weather and terrain observations, and guide you through to an informed decision. The checklists were derived from an extensive survey of Canadian avalanche professionals with the goal of duplicating, as much as possible, the assessment expertise of the professional community. As with the original, our new Avaluator 2.0 will provide you with a consistent, cautious approach for trip planning and terrain evaluation. We hope to see the new Avaluator 2.0 in your hands this winter!
