I think the recent news stories in two cases on two
different continents indicate a skier was saved by
One was some kind of super RFId that maybe
royalty only presents have access to currently, I'm
The other was an improbable self deployed airbag
actually worked - I am uncertain how it
worked, but it did.
Both halfbakeryesque type mechanisms saved
each person from avalanches.
Let's make such equipment part of the lift ticket for
the diamond slopes.
Flares in pocket 2, airbag, Super-RFID, mega/
super/ultra one time use hair dryer stick in pocket
I'm Zimmy and I approve this message.
||This sounds more like a "Let's all do this" thing. Repackage this idea as an avalanche survival kit that should be a mandatory part of the lift ticket price. I have never been skiing and never intend to, but after repackaging I'll throw a frozen bun at it anyway.
||not quite sure how psalms' re-packaging is actually so very different...
||Yeah, I was thinking the same thing after I said it...
||Make a tool that has an airbag, RFID, hair dryer blaster and airbag all in one convenient stick?

Very few people are caught in an avalanche on
groomed, managed runs, even diamond rated. The
cost for each backpack is $500 to $700. Even with
today's sky-high lift ticket prices, this won't be easy
