What do I do if I get caught in an avalanche?
1 Drop your pack and run to one side or the other. Do not run downhill.
2 Just before the avalanche hits you, turn and face it.
3 Swim uphill. Many survivors said that being caught in an avalanche as similar to being caught in a large wave of whitewater at the beach, but with even less control.
4 Just before you come to a rest, place your hands over your face and try to create and air pocket.
