    White Pass, Central Cascades, WA – February 2009

    February 25 marked the anniversary of my near-death burial in an avalanche at White Pass, WA, when my ski partner, Rick Johnson, used his BCA Tracker avalanche transceiver to find my BCA Tracker as I lay face down and unconscious under three and a half feet of snow.

    His cool nerves combined with our twenty years’ worth of practice saved my life — and I am convinced that the efficiency of the Trackers played a critical role as well. Rick had no need to sort through gee-gaws, gimcracks, bells and whistles to get the job done: and it is my belief that the simplicity of the Tracker is one of the over-looked yet most important features of your product.  I owe my life to the Tracker and I am very grateful indeed.
