After spending several hours carrying an incapciated skier to the trailhead (a trailhead only five minutes away by skis), I decided it was time I carried the tools and parts to build an emergency rescue sled quickly and easily in the backcountry.
Last winter, I stumbled into a disaster scene in the backcountry. When I arrived, several skiers were gathered around a skier laying next to the trail. The only info we could get from the downed skier was: his name was Benny, he wasn’t cold, and he couldn’t walk. We were only 10 minutes from the trailhead, but it took 2 long, cold, miserable hours to get him out. Without a sled, we had to carry him.
