Hunter Schleper was geared up and prepared – and amazingly able to dodge this avalanche while riding and filming in the Colorado backcountry. Watch and listen as Schleper’s friends use their BC Link radios to tell him to “go right” as he unknowingly triggers an avalanche and it comes down from above.
BC LINK™ RADIOS – EU EDITION
Strong group communication is the key to any successful day of adventuring. Find separated friends, communicate plans, and share observations in real-time with the BC Link™ Radio group communication system. The BC Link™ European Edition operates on PMR446 radio frequencies, approved and licensed for use in the UK and the European Union.
NOTE: the title of the YouTube video you are about to see is deceiving – you will NEVER outrun an avalanche if you are caught in one – not on skis or snowboards – which is why it is wise for your group to get educated and ride according to the avalanche conditions. Unfortunately we’re all human, so equip yourself with the right gear, including BC Link group communications, Float avalanche airbag, Tracker avalanche transceivers, probes and shovels.
