Off Piste: Tragedy in the Alps
Ski racers Bryce Astle and Ronnie Berlack had no idea of the danger they faced when they ventured off trail with U.S. Ski Team teammates. The January, 2015 avalanche that took their lives is the heart of an emotional new educational film Off Piste: Tragedy in the Alps.
BRASS 101 is designed to educate ski and snowboard athletes about dangers outside the gates! It’s a 90-minute introductory presentation available online. Reserve a date for your club, academy or school, or watch video of this season’s presentations.
BRASS Avalanche, the Bryce and Ronnie Athlete Snow Safety Foundation (BRASS), was born out of the tragic avalanche deaths of U.S. Ski Team athletes Ronnie Berlack and Bryce Astle to create a legacy of change in the culture of avalanche education and safety in the competitive and recreational ski and snowboard community. Its mission is to advocate for greater penetration of avalanche education and to lobby for the evolution of snow safety systems.
