A friend just sent a link to the video embedded below. It is a firsthand account of an avalanche scenario in the Montana backcountry. The story is educational and sobering. The clip is pretty long (30 minutes) but is a compelling account of a day in the backcountry that turned tragic despite a high level of experience within the group.
Thanks for posting this video. It is so important that people evaluate their risk and then ACT on those factors.
As a former Navy SAR swimmer is was good to hear Sam mention that SAR crews need to maintain a Safety First mind set while performing under the "So others may live" credo.
Best to all,
