I'm working on a new avalanche rescue device and would love to ask some questions to people who have been involved in a slide either as a searcher or a victim. Please private message me if you think you could help out!
Anyone have experience in an avalanche rescue scenario?

I can see a supplemental visual surface indicator (e.g. the avy cords or avy balls of old) may be of value provided it can be relied upon to not give too many false positives. Otherwise I think the issue is not in better transceivers but in improving speed to burial site, ability to create an airway in the snowpack and digging speed and capacity.
