Wow great advice everyone. I'll be sure to remember to watch if all tracks meld into one. That one happened to me as well, thank goodness it wasn't too deep. lol I always wont venture too far off untracked trails next time I get a storm. It was snowing 8-10 inches per day the 5 days we were there. It was crazy.
I guess there's no 'magic' way of swimming out. That's what I had to do, dig around me and pull my board out to use it as leverage. Once I got close enough, my friend was able to pull me a bit while i layed on my board. I guess it's a mental thing too, if I landed in that ravine I would probably freak out a little bit getting out by myself and wondering how long to climb back up waist deep snow solo.
Being stocky at 5'8 and weighing around 215-230 doesnt help either I bet.
