BCA Avalanche Experience Survey

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | March 29, 2010      

PSA, Backcountry Access is conducting a survey of folk’s avalanche experiences. If any of you WildSnowers have ever participated in an avalanche victim rescue or recovery, please fill it out so they can get some meaningful data to cut through all the guesswork that seems to be driving beacon design. Do it here.

Providing your contact info is optional, but if you do BCA will send you stuff such as hats and T-shirts (known by pirates as swag, or hip WildSnow readers and backcountry skiing outdoor industry insiders as “schwag”) But, you’ve probably already got T-shirts and hats spilling out of your closet. In that case, file a good story with the survey and if BCA uses your tale in anything they publish, they’ll update your beacon, shovel, probe or backpack to the latest BCA model. That’s pretty major pay for a bit of writing. So get on it folks (note, this survey is for rescuers, not victims).
