They say a picture is worth a thousand words. At an unsanctioned snowboard freeride contest in Colorado, competitor Meesh Hytner, was captured in a class 3 avalanche. She deployed her avalanche airbag and remained on the surface for the duration of the slide, escaping with no injuries.
Airbags should gain more acceptance among skiers, snowboarders and freeriders. Hopefully this video will help this technology reach the mainstream and save more lives. ❚
