    Descriptive info: Blogs: Public education, 2012.. 10 results.. 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.. Free Beacon Clinics and Avalanche Seminars @ Snowbird..
