Hiding Beacons

These are Alaska Mountaineering Guides training for avalanches. They bury 3 avalanche beacons deep in a snow pile. Then they have seven minutes to find all three. Anybody playing in the Alaska mountains, whether skiing or snow machining, should carry avalanche beacons. They are worth their weight in gold as they have saved many lives.
