Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag av avhandlingen:

Few things are as beautiful as snow-covered mountains. Along with this beauty comes a threat – the threat of avalanches. 9 out of 10 avalanche accidents are triggered by the victim or someone in their party. Thus, how backcountry recreationalists make a decision is of major importance. In this thesis, all relevant factors that a recreationalist may consider are reviewed and discussed along with the existing decision-making frameworks. Further, results suggesting that other user groups could apply expert strategies given the right education are presented, and the importance of avalanche forecasts is confirmed. Decision-making in avalanche terrain is associated with uncertainty. How you approach decision-making is of importance. Is it safe until proven unsafe, or unsafe until proven safe? This makes a difference. People asking how safe a slope is less willing to take risk than to people who ask how dangerous a slope is.
