Preliminary report but it sounds legit. Let’s pray that Romeo and all the other competitors are okay. Info. Sometimes people snicker about how rando racers have to carry a beacon etc., as the races are usually held in quite safe and controlled conditions that may only simulate backcountry skiing. Sounds like having a beacon is not such a bad idea after all, especially in Europe.
