This does not take the place of a live course, but it is very informative. I highly recommend to any and all heading west for the first time, please take a course, purchase or rent beacons, probes, shovels, and learn how to use them. I don't want to have to read about any JD'ers as statistics. Ride smart-Ride safe!
Also, don’t forget about Mike Duffy’s webpage on Snowmobiling Avalanche Safety when you’re ready to take a face-to-face training class! A few of us in our regular riding group took it when he was in Green Bay this year. An excellent class.
Mostly in a foreign language with some English speaking parts (Rob Alford and a lady @ 10:43) but an excellent film bolstering the fact everyone you ride with should get training in Avy safety and rescue. http://vimeo.com/9777225
