Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

DISSERTATION SURVEY. Help Needed!

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi, my names Tom Bartlett, im a 3rd year Bsc Geography student at Portsmouth University, an avid snowboarder and im currently
writing a dissertation on the risk perception of mountain users towards avalanches. As part of this ive created a survey for
recreationists to complete to better understand the way we assess our risk when on the mountain and our risk
perception of avalanches as a hazard. Please if you have 10 minutes to spare can you fill out my survey, the more
data i collect the better my results will be (and the better my dissertation will be). Im really relying on the
snowsports community for data and appreciate every survey filled out. The link below takes you to the survey. Thanks!

@TomBartlett, Very much focussed on off-pisters. I can't answer the questions as I would never ski the off pistes in your photos - not because of avalanche risk but because I am a piste only skier.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

I think the survey is interesting and I've completed it but it makes the assumption that I am skiing off piste every day. In reality I don't. So my avalanche concern awareness level on early season piste days is nigh on zero. In spring it may be 10. I've put 6 as an average but it's not exactly scientific if you're trying to base a dissertation on it. Your survey doesn't account for these differences so I think you should clarify some of the questions/criteria.

Oh, and I also recognise the Tignes photo as a place where a load of people died the other year so of course it's a no for would I ski it. I'm sure lots of other people also know that slope so maybe you should put somewhere less well known if you're trying to assess "blind" risk assessment skills.

@TomBartlett, Hi Tom, you might want to revise this question:

Quote:
What is the safest way to move across avalanche terrain when in a group?

Single file, closely spaced
Single file, wide spacing
Spread out, closely spaced
Spread out, wide spacing

as I'm not sure how you can be spread out but also closely spaced. Also, you can be in single file but still spread out...

@TomBartlett, I've put this in an appropriate forum and removed / locked other threads.
