Take Charge by Backcountry Access is an 18-minute DVD filmed at Jackson Hole and is hosted by Teton Gravity Research's lead guide, Jim Conway. Freeskiing icon Erik Roner takes charge in a rescue re-enactment involving seven skiers and snowboarders. The DVD opens with a primer on the ''five red flags of the backcountry,'' or how to avoid avalanches in the first place. It then illustrates the process of appointing a leader, ensuring rescuer safety, performing a transceiver search, probing, shoveling and first aid. The video has a particularly impressive live demonstration on how to perform a primary search with a small group in a large deposition area.
