  1. Great material, thanks.

    New skiers should also remember that using a beacon, probe, and shovel is not the focus of avalanche safety.

    The focus is not starting avalanche in the first place, or being in a potential path of a naturally occurring one, or in the path of one caused by others. The training/practice, and neat gizmos come after.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
