VIDEO: The Human Factor Launches Today on Powder.com
November 11, 2014
The new five-part multimedia story, The Human Factor, presented by Black Diamond, debuts its first
chapter today on POWDER.com. Told over the next five weeks with new
installments releasing each Tuesday, the narrative identifies the psychological
human factors that may mitigate future tragedies.
Written by skier and author David
Page, the words, photos, and videos—showcased in stunning multimedia
format—focus on the scenes and survivors of avalanche events that occurred
during the 2013-14 winter. Over the past six months, Page traveled the American
West interviewing survivors, avalanche experts, and veteran skiers to compile
the 10,000-word story that emphasizes that sound decision-making is just as
vital to snow science, if not more so, to staying alive while skiing in
The Human Factor is designed for desktop or tablet display, but can also be viewed via mobile device.
