  • um.. if that’s what the sign meant.. i didn’t get it.. :) sure wouldn’t want to be lost like those survival stories in reader’s digest.. :D nice shot too, btw..

  • @Rian it’s a reference to the avy transceivers you’re required to carry if skiing in the area because your chances of being caught and buried in an avalanche are significantly higher than lower on the mountain
