Avalanche Safety with Samuel Anthamatten

With the current stop of the Freeride World Tour on pause due to weather conditions, these pro tips from Samuel Anthamatten are very fitting, reminding us just how important it is to err on the side of caution when it comes to avalanches. The Freeride World Tour athlete and mountain guide presents the basics of avalanche safety, including the vital elements of your avalanche kit –  transceivers, probes and shovels. Sam goes on to demonstrate snow layers analysis and a compression test on a snow tower.
