It's been a deadly winter for avalanches in the western part of Canada -- the most horrific being the loss of eight snowmobilers near Fernie, B.C. As we move forward in 2009, I'd like to remind readers of several recent articles relating to backcountry safety and awareness: Wilderness Emergency Training and SPOT to the Rescue.

Stay safe this winter!
