Utah Avalanche Center Podcast

Feb 15, 2018

In December, 2008, Matt Clevenger was caught in an avalanche in the Wasatch Mountains and buried him six feet under. Luckily, one of his partners that day, Tom Diegel, reacted quickly, led decisively, and helped save Clevenger's life. Discussed in the podcast: the life-and-death risks of backcountry skiing; mentoring and finding a mentor; moving forward after being buried and rescued; making the right decisions, delegating responsibilities, and communicating well during a rescue; practice rescues; practice rescues; PRACTICE RESCUES!
