The Canadian Avalanche Association and Canadian Avalanche
Centre are currently conducting a study to learn more about the effectiveness
of avalanche balloon packs. We are therefore very much interested in
information about the use of avalanche balloon packs in avalanche involvements.
If you have been part of an avalanche incident where an
avalanche balloon pack was involved - regardless of whether it was deployed or
not - or you know of such an incident, please go to http://www.avalanche.ca/cac/bulletins/incident-reports/submit
and submit an incident report to the Canadian Avalanche Centre.
The more information you can provide, the more we will be
able to learn about the pros and cons of this avalanche safety device.
Thank you very much for your help.
