Skiing in an avalanch with an air bag
These things have to be a help. They have been around for years, not sure how many lives have been saved wearing them. For those idiots who dare to ski the back country because they need an adrenalin rush just remember that being in the front of an avalanche is like being in front of the shock wave from several tons of explosives going off. That's why you see trees being ripped out of the ground and blown away at the front of a large event. You play "bet your life" when you do that. Those who climb Everest are doing that too and put the lives of those who try to come and rescue them at severe risk. I say "let em rot" on the hill. No sympathy whatsoever.
