Transceiver Search Techniques with Orry Grant
We know you're excited for winter. You've probably already grabbed some new gear or dusted off the old stuff to get excited. Hopefully your legs are well on their way to feeling strong. But what else should you be doing before winter?
Avalanche rescue practice!
G3 ambassador Orry Grant works as a ski patrol at Whitewater Ski Resort, as well as an avalanche tech for BC Highways. He shared this entertaining pre season home video he produced, featuring a variety of transceiver search techniques and a few clever ideas to keep it interesting before the snow falls.
It goes without saying that Orry's video is merely a great pre-season avalanche safety reminder with some helpful tips for experienced backcountry travellers. The video is not an alternative to taking an actual avalanche skills training course and practicing the drills yourself.
Practice, practice, practice, and get #ReadyForWinter.
