Grizzly Peak, Colorado – April 2014
The beacon search was the easy part. After picking the signal up from around 50 meters away, I had to make an uphill traverse through the debris pile. I got out of my bindings at 8 meters and pinpointed my partner to less than a meter with my Tracker2, not even bothering to probe before I started shoveling. My partner was unburied only 6 minutes after the incident occurred. Practice with my avalanche transceiver really paid off.
Although the search was successful, I am ready to buy a Float airbag now, got any demos?
