Salomon freeride athlete Greg Hill knows his way around the mountains. In 2010, he climbed and skied 2 million vertical feet on 71 different mountains. In March of 2014, he climbed and skied 100 vertical kilometers. With that experience, he is also very much aware of the dangers lurking in the backcountry. As winter kicks into full gear, Greg made this short video to share his 5 Rules on how you can be better prepared and safe in the backcountry. Of course, these are Greg’s personal thoughts based on his experiences. If you’d like to start the process of learning more about backcountry safety—even if you are experienced in that environment—visit Salomon’s online Mountain Academy.

It’s a great way to gain some basic knowledge and the perfect refresher for those who have experience.
