    Cool idea, deployment seems like an issue.

    If this could deploy with the airbag somehow.........

    Yup, I imagine it's tough to stay calm but panicking isnt going to solve anything.

    Sled don't walk, it's faster and safer.
    Beacons out.

    Some guys go full acronym in this MIN reports.

    Cold day at the parking lot (-20 at 0900 hrs). Day remained cold in the shade (-18 at 1145 hrs at about 1700m). HS 197 cm in area probed. 60 cm snow overlies Dec SH/FC combo. SH 3 - 4 mm. The upper 60 cm is composed of 30 cm F on top of 30 cm 4F sitting on top of the SH/FC combo. Test results on NE aspect at about 1700m were CTH 24 SP dn 60 on the December SH/FC layer. In the area skied, evidence of surface sluffing to size 1-1.5. Ski test on small steep (40 degrees) slope produced only surface sluffin (top 30 com). Ski quality was excellent however we stayed away from steeper terrain with convexities.
    Cold day at the parking lot(-20 at 0900 hrs). Day remained cold in the shade (-18 at 1145 hrs at about 1700m). HS (Height of Snow) 197 cm in area probed. 60 cm snow overlies Dec SH/FC (Surface Hoar/Freeze Crust). SH (Surface Hoar sized 3-4 mm).
    The upper 60cm is composed of 30cm F (Fist) on top of 30cm 4F (Four Finger) sitting on top of the SH/FC combo. Test results on NE (North East) aspect at about 1700m were CTH 24 SP dn 60 (Compression Test Hard 24 Sudden Planer Down 60 cm) on SH/FC (Surface Hoar/Freeze Crust) layer.......

    Most of these Acronyms are quickly explained in most AST courses.. give Curtis at Frozen Pirate a call and get yourself educated by one of the very best in the industry. With a bit of practice you'll be reading MIN's like a pro!
    Books like "Staying Alive In Avalanche Terrain" by Bruce Trempler or "The Avalanche Handbook" David McClung,as well as the Av Canada fieldbook are good references for the acronyms in question!

    Thanks man that is helpful, and definitely makes sense.

    I am currently reading through the avalanche handbook.
    Took my AST 1 with Curtis.
    Waiting on an AST 2 date to line up.

    Cheers
