The Avaluator Trip Planner
The Avaluator is a tool developed by Avalanche Canada to help backcountry users manage avalanche risk. The Avaluator forms the basis of the Avalanche Skills Training 1 course and includes the chart shown below. With the Avaluator Trip Planner, you can combine the ATES rating of your planned trip with the day’s danger rating to give you guidance on how to proceed.
