January 1, 2020

Jim Conway, Bruce Edgerly, and the crew from BCA illustrate how to perform an avalanche rescue with more than one rescuer. Important elements include proper “lane discipline” when establishing search strips, when to abandon your search strip to perform the coarse and fine search, how to manage “rogue signals,” and best practices for communication and leadership on the avalanche debris pile. Essential viewing for both recreational and professional avalanche rescue training. Watch and learn.
