I don't know what your skill-level is, but if your relatively new to snowboarding you may want to hone your skills more before you devote yourself to serious backcountry. I know that in most accidents you don't have a whole lot of control of the scenario, but being an expert at freeriding certainly gives you the ability to be more responsive in a bad situation.

I haven't gotten into backcountry yet so I can't give you solid advice, Snowolf and Killclimbz know a lot however.

What do you currently have when you go out in the BC is a better question? Have you taken an avi-1 class? Do you roll solo with a group what?

I usually just take a shovel, some extra goggles, gloves, stuff like that. NOPE never taken a class. Usually go up with around 3-4 people. Most of the time they are pretty experianced. Sometimes solo.
And ya i know, its a accident ready to happen.

On top of what Snowolf said, I would also advise you (or at least 1 of your crew) get some first aid and emergency management training. knowing how to read avalanche terrain, and digging people out is all well and good, but if no one knows what to do once they are dug out it's no good.

A bit of an important perspective question. Where in the world are you BC riding? State?
