Mount Proctor, Fernie, BC – January 2008
My ski partner Todd Weselake and I were very concerned about the avalanche hazard and were just trying to avoid it get out of there. Ironically, we had taken an avalanche course less than three weeks before. Our rescue was fast and efficient because I had the right beacon, probe and shovel and knew how to use them. So please, get out and take an avalanche safety course. It could mean the difference between life and death.
