The entire TGR production team headed for the Jackson backcountry on December 15, 2010 to refresh the team's avalanche safety skills. Joined by head guide, Kent Scheler, the team dug pits to analyze snow layers and to determine the potential for avalanches. With multiple tests performed and all questions answered, the TGR crew split into three groups to practice locating and rescuing avalanche victims. Beacon, probing, and shoveling drills were all in the mix on single burials and multiple burial scenarios.
