Why we do it
Skiing in the backcountry is inherently dangerous.

But damn, is it fun.

To make the right decision every day, every time, it takes years of experience and advanced training. The terrain and variables are simply too complex and varied.

At AspectAvy, we provide a tool that when used alongside the proper avalanche safety training simplifies the decision-making process and lower their risk.

Many apps are designed to get users into the backcountry. Only AspectAvy is designed to get you home safely.

Clear Recommendation

Statistics on avalanches show a clear relationship between the stability of the snowpack and the slope angle in which avalanches occur. We use this information to provide recommendations that take the guesswork out of determining WHERE the safe slopes are.

Addressing the Human Factor

We all have our blind spots. When ignored these blind spots can lead to tragic consequences in the backcountry. We help riders identify their blind spots by coaching them to avoid their biases, improve their planning and execute on processes that will effectively manage their risk.
Data collected on avalanche accidents shows a clear relationship between the problem and where accidents occur. It’s not enough to be aware of the problem, riders need to take active steps to avoid those areas.


“Riders new to the backcountry seem to understand they need a Level 1 Avy course before heading out. But then what? People need a follow up, a script, a program to follow and get feedback. AspectAvy does that. It gives backcountry users a map to follow to safety.”
