Backcountry Tales

Bansko, Bulgaria It was a fresh snow avalanche, only the base layer collapsed and dragged me down the slope maybe 30-35m.

At first I decided that it is too small to activate the airbag, but when I could not see the sky anymore I got scared and pulled the trigger.

The airbag pulled me on the surface in 3-4 seconds, after another 5-6 seconds the avalanche stopped.

There was another skier before me who was watching my descent. I was equipped with a Tracker T2 beacon, B-2 Shovel and 340mm probe
