Avalanches happen out East. The “Working For The Weekend” crew experienced this first hand on a trip to the Chic Chocs in Quebec. While a healthy dose of luck was involved in allowing Nick to walk away relatively unharmed from this event, it was the groups’ many precautions and years of experience that ensured that the remainder of the crew was unscathed. Get educated, be cautious, respect the weather and terrain.
