Any interest in riding out-of-bounds? How about the backcountry? What's the difference? Do you pack a beacon, probe and pole every time or do you often strike out solo and hope for the best? Who hasn't been gripped by footage of Jeremy Jones or Travis Rice narrowly escaping death while riding the white wave. If you want to know the ropes, take this survey from the Canadian Avalanche Centre and Simon Fraser University to gauge your readiness. You could win a beacon, AvaLung or shovel/probe set. Or you could gain valuable info that could save your life. We're all winners in this one, go take the survey.
