XAVIER DE LE RUE has written several times for both Adventure and Ski n Snow – in April we have the Survival issue coming and we thought this would be a good taster of what is to come
In 2008 I was in a huge avalanche that I should never have survived. In this episode of How To Xv I go through the mistakes I made and the lessons that I learnt from that day. From being over confident, rushing, not looking at the signs, there were many things that I did wrong and I have tried to take those lessons forward with me and hope that I can inspire others to take that extra moment to review a line before dropping in. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below. Edit by: Tim Burgess Motion Graphics by: FX Pergola. Thanks to: Swatch, Smith, Rossignol & Crosscall.
