Depending on the aim of the day, maybe modify our planned route depending on snow conditions and maybe opt for another terrain with no avy terrain above us. If it is not possible, go grab a coffee.

This of course depends on the objective. Is it avalanche terrain? Are there safer alternative objectives available. Skiing avalanche terrain without the proper equipment, not to mention knowledge is out of the question. The group is obviously not ver

normalt sett tar eg venner kun med på safe turer der skredsøker i teorien ikkje skal være nødvendig, men eg oppfordrer likevell alle venner å bruke skredutstyr.

Take a safe route. I don't carry safty equipment for my own sake; I carry it to help others. If you think you will need safty gear on the route you have chosen, you are on the wrong route. Other can risk theirs ass for some skiing. I don't.

If it is an avalanche safe area I will do the trip ( as in under 30 deg angle and no places you can remotely trigger or be in an avalanche path) If the trip is in avalanche terrain, I will opt out. Regardless of option chosen, I will give both of the
