Avalanche Rose Supplemental Insert 12/19/2019
By Scott Smith, director, Apex Mountain School

The attached pdf’s are offered to students, clients, instructors and all other individuals and organizations benefiting from it. This rose insert may be used as a supplement to any field book not containing an avalanche rose tool. It has been designed to help organize and analyze avalanche forecasting information by problem, aspect and elevation band, as well as to see how these problems may potentially interact. It also provides a space to indicate likelihood and consequences of problems. Feel free to download and use it for your personal and/or operational use. This rose supplement was originally developed with Apex Mountain School’s recreational students in mind, but is free for all to share, download, print and use to their benefit. The first pdf is instructions on how to populate the rose insert, and the second is a downloadable/printable pdf for your use. Enjoy and stay safe out there!
