Mountain rescue: life and death on the line
Colorado's beautiful peaks can be deceptively dangerous. Each year, scores of people are lost; some die. Meet the author of a new book that takes you inside one of America's premier mountain rescue teams for a spellbinding account of the courageous men and women who put their lives on the line to save others.
When backcountry skiers are caught in avalanches, the mountain rescue team mobilizes a search. Here, dramatic avalanche footage, and a simulated search.
