@elysesaugstad and @myshellparker hosted an impromptu clinic at @squawalpine this past week on behalf of @hi5sfoundation for their next BASICS video. High Fives plays a huge role in our action sports community to help athletes recover from life altering injuries and have also expanded in increasing awareness for injury prevention. We are always grateful to team up with them! Thanks for a great day! | ๐Ÿ“ท: @fractal_filmco #safeasclinics #squawvalley

We can't think of a better thing to do on a rainy day than to practice companion rescue with a @myshellparker โ˜”๏ธ umbrella assist! Thanks to all who came out today. One down and four more to go. We still have availability on Monday Dec. 12th at @squawalpine if you would like to join us! | ๐Ÿ“ท: @leltone #safeasclinics #winter #backcountry

Avalanche dog in training? @theothebrave likes learning about layers in a snow pack too! There are strong layers and weak layers, but strong does not always mean stable! Slab avalanche potential exists when relatively strong, cohesive snow overlies weaker snow. Off to a great start at @squawalpine! | #mountains #backcountry #safeasclinics #winter

@leltone kicking us off at @squawalpine talking about "red flags." What are they? Shooting cracks or "whumphing" in snow pack, recent avalanche activity, rapid temperature rise, significant snowfall in the last 24 hours, & strong winds. ๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿšฉ | @eddiebauer @backcountryaccess #safeasclinics #backcountry #mountains

We are excited to head up to @crystalmountain on Dec. 17th & @stevenspass on Dec. 18th! We hope you have been practicing your companion rescue skills. Start your season off on the right foot with avalanche education and join us! | ๐Ÿ“ท: @jimdelzer #safeasclinics #backcountry #mountains @thenorthface @girosnow @hiballenergy

It's giving Tuesday & we are proud of our efforts to spread the love throughout the ski industry. We've raised and donated over $20,000 since the beginning of SAFE-AS to various non-profits including @hi5sfoundation @utavy @nwacus @savycenter & @avalancheproject. These non-profits are imperative to helping us stay safe in the mountains so if you're in the giving mood today...check them out. Partial proceeds from our clinics as well as 100% of donations towards our mind blowing raffle are always donated. ๐Ÿค— | #safeasclinics ๐Ÿ“ท: @jenschmidtphoto
