    Spanish Pyrenees, Near La Baqueira – Winter 2011

    I descended an exposed slope in the Pyrenees when a crown broke above me. I was buried five feet deep under the snow with no air pocket. I felt like I was dying until I heard voices calling my name. I’m grateful my friends had BCA Trackers, knew how to use their avalanche beacons and found me so quickly.
