Slide Scene

A guy slide 100 metres down that snow patch, bounced through those rocks, and stopped about a meter from going over the edge. One more bounce would have been his last...One member hover exited near the scene, prepared the patient for transport in a screamer suit, then was picked off by Blackcomb Helicopters YYR. The rescue went really really well. We had to go back up there the next day (which is actually when this pic is taken) and it was windy. Wouldn't have been able to use HETS. Then it becomes a big, big technical rescue...
