The AvySticker is intended for use only by skiers and riders who have taken an accredited 24-hour avalanche course (AIARE 1 or equivalent) and understand the risks of winter travel.
The AvySticker prompts are not a checklist for greenlighting terrain. They are reminders of important considerations to help drive conversation. More on using the AvySticker can be found here:
Like any sticker, AvyStickers will wear with use and experiences will vary, but we have prototypes that have been in use for more than two years. See the instructions for tips on good adhesion.
We continue to evaluate bulk-printed stickers. Sticky, durable, and eraseable stickers are imperative. At present, on-demand printing allows us to bring design improvements to you instantly.

The AvySticker is just a sticker, it can't ensure safety; that's your job. The aim is to provide stickers to those who might find them useful, not to advance any approach to backcountry travel. Only sufficient avalanche education, experience, and luck combined can yield decades of happiness in snowy mountains. We are not liable for any decisions you or others may or may not make while an AvySticker is used or carried by anyone in your party or in your vicinity.
