Thank you
You can have all the gear, friends with you etc, but you also have to practice finding beacons so that you are proficient if there is an avalanche. Make sure the people with you also practice and are proficient. Knowing what to do after you find the buried person is also handy. I would recomend a class if you can.......

Good shout that. When your practicing looking for beacons aswell make sure you practice with multiple beacons buried, especially if your going out with analogue receivers, it can get a bit confusing if theres 4 or 5 gone under.
