Avalanche at Bregenzer Wald, Austria

24 Jan 2009

I have been caught in a snow slab avalanche that I released in the Bregenzer Wald this past Saturday. I immediately activated the ABS System, it functioned very well. When the avalanche came to a halt I was only buried in the snow from the hip down and was able to free myself.
Since my girlfriend was partly buried herself and I wouldn’t have been able to free myself, the ABS most likely saved my life.

To the entire ABS-Team - Thank you very much for this amazing product! !
