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.
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.
We all have our blind spots. When ignored these blind spots can lead to tragic consequences in the back country. 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.
We leverage research on avalanches and avalanche accidents that's been collected over several decades. With this data, the algorithm is able to screen out 90% of accidents.
We do the heavy lifting so you can focus on managing your group, the terrain and fun. AspectAvy chooses the slopes and angles that have the same risk level as everyday activities like driving.
AspectAvy gives the rider alerts when they're approaching dangerous terrain, decision points, and when they've strayed from the plan.
At the end of each tour, feedback is given on how well the group stuck to their plan, the risk they were exposed to, and how to improve for next time.
“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. Aspect Avy does that. It gives backcountry users a map to follow to safety.”
"The backcountry community needs visionaries and ambition. That’s why Beacon is excited to partner with Aspect Avy, who, at long last, is working solve a problem that needs solving”
