Very useful site for avalanche information
Written: 2016.12.22 by: Cliff Jennings

I have known Wayne for over 30 years through Whistler Search & Rescue where he was our trainer for emergency first aid & our liaison with the Blackcomb Ski Patrol. About Wayne Quote from Mountain Life Magazine: If you are a frequent skier, rider, heli-dropper or sledder who frequents any part of the Sea to Sky backcountry, this is the man you should be listening to when it comes to your safety. Wayne Flann knows a thing or two about avalanche safety. The 32-year veteran of the Whistler/Blackcomb ski patrol is a Professional member of the Canadian Avalanche Association, a Level 2 Canadian Ski Guides Association member, Whistler Search & Rescue, Licensed Paramedic, Long Line Rescue Technician since 1986 and Safety consultant for the film industry for the past 28 years. Because he cares about the safety of people who venture out into the winter wilderness, Flann started his own blog in the fall of 2011, and has been hard at work since. He posts almost daily in the winter on avalanche activity throughout the Sea to Sky and other regions of the world. “I started the blog to get out snow pack information that I felt was pertinent for the early season conditions,” says Flann. “Had lots of positive feed back so I tried to also instill some knowledge and keep readers abreast to any trends or interesting news in the avalanche world.” This blog has been created to share information about avalanche and snow conditions in the Sea to Sky Corridor. Anyone with information or pictures of avalanche activity please feel free to pass it along.
