“Safety first, second & third. It’s that time of year to figure out what your Avalanche Awareness plan is! Take a course, go through your gear, practice with your friends and be responsible! It’s a key that can unlock your freedom in the hills- Hope to see you out there!”
Really good stuff from Utah Avalanche Center’s Trent Meisenheimer, who put together this little reenactment in order to show why it’s so important to get educated on both avalanches and your gear. Because without that type of education, things can go ‘to hell in heartbeat.’ Just ask these fellas.
