Beware a false sense of security.

The Ski Channel featured an article today about the ABS Avalanche Airbag System, and how it helped Elyse Saugstad survive a recent avalanche in the Tunnel Creek area near Stevens Pass, Washington.

This is very exciting technology, but we must not forget the recent death of Nathanael Soules who was also wearing the ABS Avalanche Airbag System.

Beware a false sense of security, backcountry/sidecountry skiers...
