  • Title: American Avalanche Association - WWAN
    Descriptive info: WWAN LINKS.. Member Services.. Subscribe.. Avalanche Notes.. Pictures.. What is the Westwide Avalanche Network?.. The Westwide Avalanche Network is an Internet computer site expressly designed for the professional avalanche community.. To successfully forecast and control avalanche hazard, avalanche professionals must not only gather critical information about local snowpack and weather variables, but avalanche activity from nearby areas, opinions from other avalanche workers, updates of explosives issues, and, in general, keep abreast of the rapidly changing state of the art.. Background.. Art Judson first started the Westwide Avalanche Network over 25 years ago under the Forest Service and it has acted as a repository of mountain weather and avalanche data ever since.. In 1995, the Forest Service decided to end funding for the Westwide, and to turn it over to the private sector.. Because Westwide enjoyed widespread support among the professional avalanche community, a committee of avalanche professionals from throughout the country volunteered their time to bring the Westwide into the '90's and turn it into an Internet site.. The new Westwide Avalanche Network is a vastly expanded and more useful system than the original Westwide.. Affiliation.. The Westwide Avalanche Network is run by a committee under the American Association of Avalanche Professionals.. However, all financial transactions are handled through a separate Westwide Avalanche Network account set up under the Center for Snow Science at Alta (CSSA).. The CSSA is a 501(c)3 non-profit, tax  ...   is segmented into three groups of increasing security.. In the first group, the general public can access public avalanche advisories from both the U.. and around the world, lists of avalanche classes, some avalanche news groups, some automated mountain weather data, and other non-sensitive data.. The second level contains the Data Exchange (DataX) section (weather and avalanche data from ski resorts, highway control programs and helicopter skiing operations) and SNOTEL data.. Subscribers are able to discuss current issues in the Electronic Patrol Shack , a password protected news group server.. Many other features are also available.. Members must first be an approved professional member of the American Association of Avalanche Professionals or Canadian Avalanche Association and pay a modest additional fee for access.. The final, and most secure level, is designed as an Industry Information Exchange, reserved only for permitted explosives users in the avalanche industry and active members of avalanche forecasting and control operations.. This section will contain important updates for users of explosives, avalaunchers, military weapons, avalanche accidents and other important news which can keep users abreast of the current state of the art of avalanche forecasting and control.. It will also contain real-time weather, snow stability and avalanche occurrence information from around the country so all avalanche professionals can stay abreast of changing weather and avalanche conditions, not only in their own area but from other parts of the country..
