  • Dan Caruso – BCA Tracker Avalanche Rescue

    Davos, Switzerland – January 2001

    After an epic morning of powder skiing, we decided to traverse across a small face to access some spines. It was right in the middle of the ski area, but deadly nonetheless. As our local friend got out on the slope, the whole face released and left him buried below. I had to post–hole back uphill to get to the debris, and as soon as I switched my Tracker to search mode, I got a signal and homed in on our friend immediately. He was out and breathing in less than five minutes. The ease of use of the BCA Tracker in that stressful situation made the difference between life and death.
