WATCH: BCA's Send and Return Video Series - Episode 3

BCA's Send and Return video series is all about riding hard in the backcountry, according to the avalanche conditions.

In episode three, BCA joins Jim Phelan, Randy Swenson, Linden Ladouceur, Julio Eiguren and BCA ambassador Dwayne Paynton on a rowdy day of mountain snowmobiling near Revelstoke, BC. Like all responsible mountain snowmobilers, they check the avalanche forecast ahead of time to identify the avalanche problems and determine where to ride safely. And, of course, they carry all the right gear, including avalanche transceivers, shovels, probes, avalanche airbags, and BC Link radios.
