Training Notes:

Safety First!

  •  The Utah Avalanche Center: Forecasts, Snow safety, etc. 
  • Summer Backcountry Safety, A handout on staying safe in the mountains.
  • Images: Loads (hundreds!!) of images by Weber County Sheriff's Search and Rescue team members have been loaded onto the web site. They are ordered by date (most recent listed first). Please note that these are raw images that have not been cleaned up, retouched, modified in any way. If an image is dark, usually, you can easily fix it for example. Sheri can supply high resolution images to you as needed--just be aware that we all have day jobs and response for images may not be instantaneous. ;-)

    Note! We are currently working on the web site and will be moving all pre-2005 images to other pages--either in the training or rescues (missions) sections.
