Riding Tip: How to Get Unstuck
Mountain Sledder | On 12, Feb 2012
Getting stuck is a drag, but it happens to even the best riders.
There are a few different ways to get unstuck. Different methods work under different circumstances. Maybe you’re stuck going uphill. Or in a creek bottom, or up against a tree. You might even get stuck on the flats on a super deep day!
Here are a few suggestions to try out next time you’re “turbo” stuck.
And always remember to be aware of your exposure to avalanche hazard! Don’t expose more than one rider at a time. If a member of your group is stuck on a slope, watch and wait from a safe area while they dig themselves out!
