This weekend the bodies of three snowboarders who were killed in an avalanche in the Cascades in December were finally recovered. How can you help prevent more avalanche deaths in the future? See below:

The Friends of the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center is collaborating with NWAC to upgrade the website (http://nwac.us) for NWAC forecasts and data, and would like your input for this process! As part of the effort to better serve winter recreationists, collaborators, and other users, The Friends are undertaking a complete overhaul of this important resource to make it more user friendly and graphical, and provide better service to all. If you consult the NWAC mountain weather and avalanche forecasts or rely on the regional telemetry data to plan your trips, your input is critical.

PLEASE take a few minutes to log onto Survey Monkey and complete this user survey:

Please forward this email to others that you feel may benefit from the NWAC website.
Your input is extremely important in this development. Thanks for your help.
