    Cerro Catedral, Argentina – May 2012
    Prior to that trip I had never stepped foot in the backcountry and it was the first time I had ever come face to face with a piece of BCA gear. Although the experts gave me the practice and knowledge needed for an avalanche rescue, nothing could have prepared me for what actually happened that day. In no way did I consider myself an expert or efficient in the use of any of BCA’s gear but even as a novice 17 year old kid in the back country for the very first time, I was able to use the Tracker DTS with ease and save a life.
