We're Goin' Backcountry Baby!

Saturday, January 17, 2009

No longer are we slaves to the piste! A few days ago we invested in avalanche transceivers. This means we can leave the pisted runs, and spend some time in the uncontrolled territory of Sainte Foy. Whilst the risk is slightly higher, we're schooled up in avalanche rescue techniques using our new beacons, and we're exceptionally careful. Play-it-safe-Simon and I are not particularly keen on actually having to dig each other out of avalanche rubble, so we're sticking to very mellow terrain. Even the mellow stuff has some pretty sweet rewards...
