Professional Decision-Making in Avalanche Terrain
This survey is part of a larger research project that examines
the risk perception and decision-making process of avalanche professionals and amateur winter
recreationists with respect to avalanche safety. The results of this study will provide important
background information for the development of more effective avalanche safety
A similar survey focusing on amateur winter recreationists
was conducted during the winter of 2005 as part of the ADFAR Project of the Canadian
Avalanche Association. The similarity of the two surveys allows a direct comparison
of professional and amateur decision-making.
The survey has 7 sections
and will take about 30 minutes to complete.
Your answers will be kept strictly confidential
in accordance with Simon Fraser University’s research ethics guidelines.
