The North American Avalanche Danger Scale is a five level scale used to communicate the danger of avalanche to backcountry recreationalists. The danger is a combination of the expected likelihood, size, and distribution of avalanches. It provides a very basic description of the avalanche conditions.

Can you help us through a rough winter?
As you know, the winter of 2014-15 has been a rough one for all of us who love snow, yet our work at NWAC continues. Despite the lack of snow, we are still issuing a daily avalanche forecast, taught almost 150 avalanche awareness classes and expanded our youth education program, and recently launched our new mobile app! All of these services cost money and our lackluster winter has made fundraising a challenge. Please donate today to help us get through what will likely be the driest winter since NWAC was founded over thirty years ago.
Please consider supporting a service that may someday save your life or that of someone close to you.
Snowball 2015 is Thursday, February 5 at the Seattle Design Center in Seattle!
Please help us support avalanche safety and join us for a great dinner, drinks, silent and live auctions, and more!
