The importance of safety on any mountain is a key ingredient to skiing. If you don't think about your safety then it will come back to haunt you and it'll probably haunt you in a way that you can't come back from. The Freeride World Tour is very aware of this so they give out avalanche training at all their stops. With a lot of freestyle skiers competing in the FWT they might not all have avalanche experience so to get them prepared is the most important thing.
This latest video shows off the lessons the riders had in Chamonix and the kit they use.
