Snow science: Sidetracked with Robin Van Gyn by Full Moon

Aside from your beacon, probe and shovel, the most valuable assets you can take with you in the backcountry are knowledge and sound common sense. Robin Van Gyn understands that the repercussions of one small oversight, mistake or distraction can be disastrous, thus she has outfitted herself with the tools necessary to stay safe in the wilderness. Robin just wants to ride powder; there’s no arguing with that.
