We keep an archive of all forecasts since 1993 which is browse-able and download-able.

Reporting an avalanche, especially if witnessed,  provides valuable stability information which can be used to help all mountain users with their decision making process and, which also provides essential data for avalanche research. We encourage anyone who sees an avalanche to help the SAIS by Reporting an Avalanche using our on-line form.
