Pocket of Catnip or Live Mice When Skiing Avalanche Terrain

post #1 of 7

That's right.  You might want to have a pocket full of Catnip or even better live mice next time you are skiing avalanche terrain in Canada.

Is your suggestion in addition to, or instead of, the standard pocket full of "avi bacon" or "avi sausage"? smile.gif

just to be safe I would go with "in addition".  May want to keep the avi bacon away from the avi live mice.

Oh this should be good. I'm on the edge of my seat awaiting the outcome...but does it belong in backcountry skiing or is this an inbounds avy thread?  Only time will tell.

The look of terror/horror on the cat's face says it all.

Good one.  I didn't even catch that one.  Personally I am not much of a cat person.  We have 3 dogs in the house.  I found carca.ca article in the BANFF Mountain Film Festival Magazine.  

 

One of the problems ski patrol has is getting the Avi dog to the OB Avi scene. They typically ski with the dog on their back.  Hence they usually use smaller retrievers.  That 90lbs black lab you may have in your house does not make for a good OB Avi dog.
