Could the Avalanche Bulletin be More Effective?
Could the Avalanche Bulletin be More Effective? Exploring Patterns of Use and Comprehension Among Backcountry Recreationalists
Anne has a broad range of research interests at the intersection of human behavior and natural hazards. She earned master’s degree in Resource and Environmental Management with the Simon Fraser University
Avalanche Research Program (SARP) in Vancouver, British Columbia and has a decade of experience as a guide, educator, and snow safety director. Her interests include examining
the effectiveness of operational risk management practices, education curriculum, and public risk
communication products in the avalanche context. For her master’s research, Anne evaluated how public
avalanche bulletins are being used by backcountry recreationists to offer evidence-based solutions for how
bulletin products could resonate more effectively. This winter, Anne is excited to be joining the team at
Avalanche Canada as a public avalanche forecaster in Revelstoke, British Columbia.
