    Spoke with Barry and Rod, S&R. They are out looking on there sleds as it is too socked in for the chopper. Valemount crew came in to look as well. A member seen them going down the drop of doom and it got really socked in. I've been in that area when suddenly you cant see and it can be tough to get out. Hopefully they just hunkered down for the evening. I presume there is no communication devise amongst the group. They have the best looking for them and were spotted once yesterday so give it time and they will locate them and hopefully the outcome is good.

    More people need the Garmin RINO - I know they are expensive and the screen breaks and they aren't waterproof - they are a very effective tool against campouts though - not sayin just sayin

    Inreach
    Spot
    Zoleo
    Sat phone
    Any of those.
    Plus a good raido.
    Use the inreach or commication device to get the word out.
    Then if help is being sent you can rely your radio frequency.

    Who knows maybe they have stuff like this and for whatever reason it didn't work. Wont know until they are found

    The Rino saved my bacon in the fog multiple times - I guess anything that shows your tracks is all I'm saying - maybe that never lost app I dunno - I rely on my Rino - baeofang and the spot gen4 - pretty well got er all covered with that setup - datz all

    ummm, what?

    Yes they are waterproof and any screen can break. 8 total in our group and no broken screens and if you add frogskin on the speaker portion to stop water from freezing in the holes and preventing sound getting through, they are waterproof.

    But yes, they are awesome.

    Well they are and they aren't I guess lol - when you Garmin is plugged in - in the glove box and your sled is upside down in 2ft of water at Chappell - it tends to not make the Garmin not feel too good
