    Avalanches in Oregon

    Oregon seems to take a back-seat as far as avalanche awareness and preparedness is concerned. Fortunately, it also seems to have many less avalanche related injuries and deaths. However, they still occur.

    Has anyone here had any experiences with avalanches in state? Has anyone you know?

              Due to the fact that Susie was holding my computer hostage while I could have been looking for this post and beat J-rad to the punch. Darn women, always causing problems

                Our club has someone who is some kind of certified avalanche rescue person. He wants to teach a half day class this year on how to find someone and probably how to avoid them. If anyone is interested, let me know and I will post it here when I get more info.
                When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels.

                    There was a significant avalanche several years ago at Crater Lake, two folks in a search party looking for lost snowboarders were buried, both made it out ok. That event made The Weather Channel's significant weather event on cable TV.

                    I know of one at Paulina Lake where a rider was highmarking, he made his turn and the hill came down, he was able to barely outrun the snow. It filled the bowl that he was riding in, two other guys were riding with the guy were parked a ways up the hill, and saw the event. Fortunately, they were high enough on the hill that the snow was still below them when it settled. We do have avalanches here. How many of us are really prepared?

                    The rescue team for YOU is YOUR buddies. What kind of rescue can they put in place if YOU get buried?

                      I can tell you that we are prepared as best as we can so far. We both carry shovels, probes, and wear beacons. Could we use a little more practice with them? Of Course, practice makes perfect. I carry enough medical supplies to get someone off the mountain that suffers injury, of course there is limitations to that as well. MOST of the people we ride with have the same frame of mind that we do, BUT there are a few that do but haven't made the investment in ALL of the correct equipment. We will get them there soon hopefully.

                          Okay, mark your calendars and check out our website for more information later. We have set a date for the avalanche rescue training for January 24th. It will be held at Thousand Springs Sno-park on Highway 62 (near the entrance to Crater Lake Nat'l Park). We are actually having a Ladies Ride that day there and thought we would also hold the avalanche class the same day. http://www.roguesnowmobilers.com
