Posted December 10th, 2013 @ 11:43am by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

A BACKCOUNTRY SKIER -- DRAGGED INTO A RAVINE, BY AN AVALANCHE -- WAS SAVED BY A SPECIAL AIR BAG SHE DEPLOYED, TO STAY AFLOAT IN THE SNOW.

IT WAS THE FIRST AVALANCHE BURIAL OF THE SEASON IN UTAH.

OTHER SKIERS WITNESSED THE SNOW SLIDE, AND RESCUED THE WOMAN, MONDAY, FROM UNDER A FOOT OF SNOW IN LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON.

THEY SAY SHE LIKELY WOULD HAVE BEEN BURIED UNDER MORE SNOW, WITHOUT THE AIR BAG.
