Snow Guardians™ is an immensely visual documentary on the life and work of Ski Patrol and Search & Rescue teams that respond to winter emergencies in the backcountry.

The expanding interest in the backcountry has resulted in a growing number of adventurers seeking enjoyment outside a ski resort. The imperfect science of avalanche study and prediction may be the only thing standing in the way of life and death for a growing number of backcountry adventurers.

Learn from the experts on how to save yourself during an avalanche or backcountry emergency. Can you use a probe, pole and beacon to save your friend? How much training has your backcountry partner had?
