Snow slab avalanche at Zendeslerkofel


"Triggered a dry snow slab avalanche on Zendeslerkofel on 7.2.10:

Slope: north; entry approx. 35-40°.

The crack height was from approx. 20 to approx. 80 cm, I immediately triggered the airbag; when the avalanche stopped (after approx. 100 m) I only had to lift my head and shake off the snow - I didn't even have to be dug out - thanks to ABS®."
