BRASS Avalanche

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.
