A New Partnership

Professional big mountain skier, Cody Townsend, explains why he’s signed up with ABS: Avalanche Air Bag Systems.


I’m super psyched to now be representing a company that might save your life. I am now a representative of ABS: Avalanche Air Bag Systems. I chose to partner up with ABS because I believe in the technology’s ability to save lives in the mountains and I want to help promote it’s faculty to a relatively uninformed North American market.

While nothing can replace avalanche awareness, good mountain sense and already established avalanche equipment, the ABS air bag packs are a proven line of defense in avalanche situations. There is a lot of data that proves this fact and over the course of this year alone, I’ve personally heard more and more stories of people’s lives being saved in avalanches because of these bags.

If you don’t believe me, check out this video with Xavier de la Rue and his experience with the ABS. He has assured me many times that he would not be alive today if it weren’t for his ABS.

So look for yourself here ABS. If you’ve been considering an avalanche inflatable pack in the past, there is no sooner time to get one that now.
