Mt. Charleston Fire Leaves Increased Risk Of Avalanche

Listen
AIR DATE: December 5, 2013

The Mt. Charleston wildfire had many bad outcomes, including leaving residents and skiiers facing an increased risk of avalanche. The site of the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort in Lee Canyon was not affected by this summer's fires, and is not facing any increased avalanche risk, according to a spokesperson. But the question for backcountry skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts remains: How do they manage avalanche risk? And what do you need to know before you venture out into the snow?
