The Day Nick McNutt Nearly Died in an Avalanche

By

Last season, while filming for Make Believe, Nick McNutt’s worst-case scenario became a reality: he was fully buried in an avalanche. To make things worse, his avalanche beacon stopped transmitting during the slide. It was only through having a crew of experienced and professional partners were his partners, Christina Lustenberger and Ian Macintosh were able to rescue him. Avalanche rescue is already a difficult task, but it becomes akin to finding a needle in a haystack without a working beacon.

From the experience, McNutt shared that, “Things can go wrong. Hope for the best, strive for the best, and be prepared for the worst.”
