That is cool and sure a lot better than having to use your avalanche transceiver and shovel to save your buddy.

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.

Wow. Amazing how fast it took him down the mountain. I now own a BCA Float 22, beacon, probe and poles. The one in the video inflates with a motor you can hear it. Mine has a 1200 psi tank. Glad I have it now. Im in Whistler now and its been puking snow since we arrived. Upper mountain still closed due to high winds. Can't wait till tomorrow!
