WHY OBSERVATIONS MATTER

The CAIC issues forecasts daily for an area XX times bigger than Switzerland Alps with only XX the staff. They rely on observations from the public, ski patrols, guiding companies, and education providers in order to make accurate updates to the forecasts that you depend on. You can help by submitting an observation. It might be that you saw signs of avalanche activity, or just noting that the wind was blowing hard on a ridge but the skiing was great on the way down. These observations add up, giving the CAIC thousands of extra eyes on the ground across the state.

Make 10 observations this season and join the #ObSquad
