Preparing for the backcountry

We had a session with Nick and Scott from NSA this week to get us clued up on how to deal with emergency situations when working in the back country. We’re working with these guys this year with back country photography and video for professional and advanced skiiers/riders.

Super stoked on the whole program and can’t wait to be scoring fresh lines from the Cat. We ran through a few scenarios from a broken wrist to spinal injury with evacuation (Bon makes a great spinal injury model). These guys know their stuff and it’s an awesome opportunity to work along side them – not to mention the chance to score some great snow and fresh lines in Niseko’s backcountry!!
