In This Course:

You have to let go of your heavy equipment. In order to be able to escape the avalanche, you have to be light enough to run quickly. With the added weight of the equipment, escaping will be difficult, maybe even impossible. Let go of your backpack, and ski poles. Drop the equipment quickly and run for it. This will increase your chances of staying towards the surface of the snow even if you don’t escape the flow completely. If you are heavy, you will sink right to the bottom of the snow, and this will reduce chances of survival.
