Living in the snow country of Colorado, we’re always acutely aware of the danger of backcountry skiing or snowboarding. Snow and mountain conditions change constantly, no matter what the weather may seem like. Being prepared, whether your skiing, snowboarding or just hiking in the backcountry at any time of year is important. Here’s a video clip shot last week of professional snowboarder Meesh Hytner, near Montezuma, Colorado in the Vail-Summit zone of Colorado. As she snowboarded down the mountain, she triggered an avalanche. Luckily, she was wearing an Avalanche Airbag from Backcountry Access and walked away from it. Watch this amazing video.
