Salomon athletes Chris Rubens and Greg Hill teamed up with Salomon TV and Switchback Entertainment to show us what you can do in a backcountry avalanche scenario, including first steps to take, how to perform a beacon search, the correct way to probe, and good shoveling techniques, all of which can prove to be essential during such an emergency if a member of your party is caught in a slide.
