Avalanche accident in BC, Canada
"Well, our group was going to Castlegar (BC, Canada) and I was caught in an avalanche that only came down sideways to get from one place to another. The good news was that everything went well from then on. By then we were so far spread out that only I was involved and I was carrying my ABS® backpack that you recommended - thanks for that. I was just going over the hill when I saw snow flowing over my skis, when I looked to the left I was hit by a 5 foot wall of snow and took me with it.
I immediately grabbed the ABS® backpack, because I could feel the snow in my neck. As soon as the airbags deployed, I was only pulled into the deep snow up to my hips and I was able to avoid a tree while being carried along by the avalanche. I came to rest, buried only up to my waist. "Fantastic product." I could feel myself being pulled up after the rucksack released."
