    Is it working??? I mean really, how the hell do you know?? Just cause it should. How do you check to make sure? Just some simple questions to ask before your life depends on it. http://ckpg.com/news/16815-torpy-mtn...med-video.html

    I'll have one before I ride this year as well if all works out on a pending deal on a used one. If not I will just buy a new one. Either way I think I've already been on too many rides without one.

    I am done with the mountains, i am going to stick to the trees, it is more fun anyway and one heck of a lot more challenging. To heck with the whiteouts, cliffs, cravas's and avalanches.

    Evolution. Just like absolutely everything else, we gotta see where that limit/threshold is.

    Re: Do yow wear an Avalanche Air Bag in the Mountains

    I dont wear one as of right now, mainly because i stay away from the massive hills and mostly ride trees,,, not sayin avys dont occur there but the risk is substantionally lower,,,all said i will be pickin one up in the future sometime.

    Don't have them yet....... Know several that have been involved in avies and never survived when they were deployed. Also know of several that were caught and never had time to react to deploy the bags before being buried and did survive.

    Just throwing that out there

    best prevention is to know and steer clear..........take an avy course!!!!
