This video is scary, not so much that someone was buried (which is scary), but the chaotic mess that ensues with the search party. The fact that people had to be told to turn their beacons to search so they don't interfere with the searching beacons terrifies me. Thank god everything turns out ok.

I know it would be a pain and receive allot of backlash from skiers and snowboarders.. but I think there needs to be mandatory backcountry/avy licence to be able to be in areas like this (with heavy fines for those without). There are too many people that have the gear with little knowledge of how to use it and/or what to do when it's needed.
