The Avaluator™ Trip Planner combines current snow and avalanche conditions (danger rating) and the terrain of the intended trip (ATES rating). It uses colours to represent professional recommendations about training and experience required for safe travel. Through the colour boundaries, it aids the user in deciding whether the risk falls within personal tolerances. It then presents prevention values that provide a somewhat objective measure for personal decisions about risk.
The Avaluator™ does not predict when or where avalanches will occur, nor does it tell you to go or not to go, but it does provide a systematic planning process that helps you make informed decisions about the potential risk presented by your trip. It allows users to make informed choices about what combinations of danger and terrain ratings are acceptable to them.
