This is calculated from a 20-year record of fatal avalanche accidents in the participating alpine countries.. Adding the number of the fatal accidents in North America, the mean increases to 138.. Most victims released the avalanche themselves during skiing or hiking in backcountry terrain.. However, a significant number of people died while they were skiing or snowboarding off-piste or snowmobiling in the backcountry.. For the latter groups, the annual numbers of fatal accidents are slightly increasing..

  • Title: Secondary Handler Steps Up To The Plate at Solitude: Rio & Jeremy Brodney | Wasatch Backcountry Rescue
    Descriptive info: Secondary Handler Steps Up To The Plate at Solitude: Rio Jeremy Brodney.. Blog Home.. Last Friday I had the opportunity to visit Solitude resort and spend the day with their professional Ski Patrol.. The director of Solitude s dog program, Keith Sternfels made me feel right at home, and sent me up to the Powderhorn shack to meet with Jeremy Brodney and Rio.. Rio is Solitude s only C-level, or Candidate dog, and in fact belongs to the patrol director, Marvin Sumner.. Even though he is technically Rio s B, or secondary handler, the 22 month yellow lab spends a great deal of her on mountain time with Jeremy.. It s clear that the two share a close bond.. Rio is Jeremy s first foray into training an avalanche search and rescue puppy, and his passion for the task is clearly evident.. He admits working with Rio can at times be challenging, but finds the work uniquely rewarding.. It s easy to understand why- Rio is one affectionate pup.. Qualities like a high drive, and high energy that make for an excellent search and rescue dog, can make for a puppy that is difficult to train.. I can say from first hand observation, that Jeremy is certainly stepping  ...   any different!.. Solitude employs a veritable smorgasbord of working Avalanche Rescue dogs in addition to Rio.. There s Bridger, a striking 7 year old German Shepard, whom I am convinced could solve long division problems if only he could figure out how to hold a pencil.. And who could forget Solitude s other A level dog, lovable Ike- the 6 y/o black Lab rescued by the resort three years ago.. When it comes to B level, resort certified dogs there s Subi, an adorable eight year old Australian Shepherd, and coming in at the ripe old age of 12, Chaco shows little sign of slowing down..

  • Title: Avalanche Safety | Wasatch Backcountry Rescue
    Descriptive info: Safety and Decision Making: A Psychological Dilemma.. Last week I went on mountain with Snowbird Ski Patroller Ari Theodore to do some basic beacon locator drills and transceiver practice.. I learned a lot and had a great time, but it was a sobering experience.. After locating two buried beacons I began to think about what the drill represented, what those thuds I had felt my probe striking were intended to represent.. Bodies.. As the reality of the drill sunk in I started thinking about all the unnecessary risks we take in our day to day lives, and how taking just one of those risks, making one tiny mistake in the backcountry could put actual human life in danger.. Then it hit me- what about the tiny mistakes we make every day we ski in bounds at the resort?.. Sat, 12/1/2012 - 10:27pm | Posted by.. Add new comment.. Read more..
