Social Science and Avalanches
Hello fellow backcountry enthusiasts
My name is Alexandria Schmitz and I am a research student at Thompson Rivers University. I am doing a study on the achievement motivations of backcountry skiers and snowmobilers. Social sciences lack in avalanche research and there is much to know about the human factor and avalanche safety. Understanding human behaviour is the first step in understanding how we can prevent more backcoutnry incidents.
If you would assist in the research by answering the survey below it is much appreciated. The survey is confidential and annoynomus.
