EpicTV: Backcountry Basics Step 5: Get Out of Harm's Way

BCA guide ambassador Lel Tone and BCA/TGR athlete Colter Hinchliffe talk about the essential avalanche and backcountry safety steps every skier, snowboarder and snowmobiler must take to limit your group’s exposure to dangerous terrain. These include discussing the consequences of traveling on a slope before committing, avoiding terrain traps, placing only one person on a suspect slope at a time, and how and when to help someone when they're in hazardous terrain. Filmed with support from AIARE and The Avalanche Project.
