Avalanche Canada is promoting their user-friendly Mountain Information Network (MIN). The network allows sledders to gather and share real-time, location-specific information.
Reports are easy to upload—no special expertise is needed.
- Quick reports share general snow, weather, and ice conditions.
- Avalanche reports share information on notable avalanches, or overall avalanche conditions.
- Snowpack reports share observations on snowpack depth, layering, and bonding. Snowpack test results are also useful.
- Weather reports share data on temperature, precipitation, wind speed and direction, and cloud cover.
- Incident reports help us all learn by describing close calls and accidents.
MIN reports are also available in a list view, where you can sort by date, forecast region, and report type.
