Transceiver Training

Henry Schniewind talks you through how to use your avalanche transceiver (or beeper) to locate and recover an avalanche accident victim within 15 minutes.

This is a training video that shows you the 5 step sequence you should follow if one of your ski party is caught and buried in an avalanche.

Evidence shows that if victims are recovered in less than 15 minutes they have a very good chance of survival. If recovery takes longer than that, then their survival chances are much reduced. So your best chance of saving the victim life is to be capable of a self managed rescue.

In this video, we show you the basics.There’s no substitute for hands on training and practise, either in the UK or in the Alps.
