Avalanche RescueIt’s the winter sports season in the northern hemisphere. That means rescuers must train and prepare for specific threats to the community including avalanche. Ski patrol member Kyle Nelson (our disaster weather expert) joins us this week to talk about his experience recently helping to coordinate medical response at the 2019 XGames in Aspen, Colorado. We then transition into talking about avalanches. Kyle helps us explore the causes of avalanches, risks involved in rescue and back-country snow sports, and talks a little about avalanche rescue and safety technology now available.
