This past season, seasoned veteran Markus Eder was reminded of an important lesson in backcountry safety, as he narrowly escapes an avalanche while filming for #Anywherefromhere. It is important to remember that no matter your level of experience and expertise, avalanches can happen and mistakes can be made. The key is learning from those mistakes and trying our best not to let them happen again. Backcountry snow safety is not only for you but for those around you as well.
Preparation is key when heading into the backcountry. We are proud to partner with onX Backcountry in bringing you the most powerful backcountry ski mapping tool ever created. For a limited time, get one month free, or 20% off your onX membership when you use the code "Matchstick20". Try the same backcountry touring app that Avalanche Forecasters, Matchstick Athletes, Cinematographers, and Ski Guides use.
onX is a great tool for getting into the backcountry, but it is far from the only tool you need. Always have a beacon, shovel, and probe, and be sure you know how to use them. Check the forecast, communicate with your team, and make a plan. Seek out opportunities to further your avalanche education. We have been learning for over 30 years, and the journey never stops.
