TAKING SKI ADVENTURES TO A NEW LEVEL TAKING SKI ADVENTURES TO A NEW LEVEL

Why is an avalanche airbag an advantage? § More and more skiers/snowboarders are accessing Why is an avalanche airbag an advantage? § More and more skiers/snowboarders are accessing avalanche terrain each year (“Backcountry”, “Sidecountry” and “Slackcountry”) § Better equipment enables bolder exploration § Steeper slopes (30 to 45 slope angle – 38 is prime avalanche terrain!!) § Further from rescue NOT BURIED 95% survive 34% survive 5% die from Trauma 66% die 50% not buried 50% totally buried 80% from full burial 20% from trauma

Survival changes of a Completely buried Person Average time needed of professional rescue Survival Survival changes of a Completely buried Person Average time needed of professional rescue Survival chances: after 15 Minutes: ca 80% Survival changes in % after 30 Minutes: ca 40% After 45 Minuten: ca 30% After 60 Minuten: ca 25% After 90 Minuten: ca 20%

Bigger Volume => Closer to the Surface · The avalanche victim‘s volume needs to Bigger Volume => Closer to the Surface · The avalanche victim‘s volume needs to be increased to avoid foundering back into the snow without ABS with ABS

Solution - DO NOT GET BURIED!! Solution - DO NOT GET BURIED!!

Why ABS? § European based company with expertise in airbag technology § Been in Why ABS? § European based company with expertise in airbag technology § Been in business since 1985 § #1 worldwide supplier of avalanche airbag packs § The North Face is FIRST GLOBAL partnership for ABS § 262 deployments – 254 survived (97% survival rate)*

HOHENESTER‘S self-experiments in the 70 s • • Hunter Josef Hohenester slid over deep HOHENESTER‘S self-experiments in the 70 s • • Hunter Josef Hohenester slid over deep couloires while carring deer on his shoulders frequently avalanches were unleashed He discovered an unexpected buoyancy effect through the additional volume of the deer he was carrying This discovery lead to the first experimental versions of floating devices

ISPO 1985: FIRST ABS ON THE MARKET • Mono Airbag System • system mounted ISPO 1985: FIRST ABS ON THE MARKET • Mono Airbag System • system mounted directly to the body • optional: combination with a backpack • Weight: 8. 8 lbs
