awsome thread, yah i will watch out for that stuff here in west virginia.
haha seriously though, we have a shit load of snow, and a solid, yet not crusty base. we are in deep!
one how you would get your pack off in an avalanche idk but why you would want to it gives you more mass which will help you stay on top and if you are barried from the waste down it could be possible to get your pack off and get your shovel and dig yourself out.
When: Boxing Day
A British guy's friends reported him missing at 7pm
He was found the next morning by the piste basher. He was in a small triangle of ungroomed snow between two easy groomers. He had a 6ft slab of snow on top of him. He was dead.
Mountains are sweet, but they can bite your ass. OP has the right idea.
just an add: when an avalanche went down...and some poeple are under it..be carefull with the search...
these days in switzerland it happend..that some touring guys came into an avalanche...and while searching them a second avalanched went down and even more pople went udner it...and they all had the tracker on SEARCHING (of course) which means no signal to find them immediately!
the thing i wanna say..don't get panic when an avalanche happens...and look for more danger to come!
have fun in bc anyway!
(sry my english, hope u get it)
