The Avalanche Airbag Backpack or Avalanche Flotation Device (AFD) has been around for many years, but only recently have they been incorporated into commercial heli-skiing operations. There are many reasons for this, but one of the single most important is that the Ministry of Transport has only recently approved the cylinders for transport in commercial aircraft, i.e. helicopters.

Skiing isn't just big mountain or powder drops. Sometimes freestyle skiing has to rear its head for the masses to see. Here's a great video of Andri Ragettli showing that he's got enough talent to be the next Tanner Hall. Whether he'll be as crazy as Tanner himself we'll never know but there's one thing that you might need information on. Andri is only 12 years old! Yup! 12!
