Read the text below the video before watching it. This is something everyone should see and it has really opened up my eyes as to what happens after the avalanche stops.

Motivation to take an avalanche course can get any more real than that. Holy cow...what a video clip.

I think that the breathing changes after the rescuer reaches into the hole part way through the rescue.
Not sure but I'm thinking this might be the rescuer removing the avalung from the skier's face. The breathing sounded a lot more natural after this.
Other thoughts?

Has anyone used an avalung before? I think that a full face snowmobile helmet might make it tough to use. Comments??

ordering it is not enough, learning to use it and use it properly is....

We all suggest taking an Avalanche Skills Training course. Definitely worth the investment!

I agree, I never realized how ill prepared I was for an avy until i took a zacs course. I had all the best gear and thought I knew how to use it, but the course is an eye opener. now to get everyone I ride with to get educated too. Our fun can become serious business real quick, GREAT VID!!!!!

changes the way we all go about riding in areas unknown. taking chances are not always worth the risk of family or riding buddys. choose carfully .:beer::beer: thanks
