@GrahamS that video has me in tears plus a bit of gagging in sympathy !
On the avalanche pic you can see how steep the slope is top left. As an aside I did an off piste day which included a session of avalanche work it was quite scary how bad we were at finding a burried transceiver and also how heavy and block like the "avalanche rubble" is.
It's also positive you are getting a transceiver, I've quite a lot of friends with them. I don't as I only do "genuine" off psite with a guide if we are venturing far and they provide them. I know what people have posted above but the truth is the vast majority of people skiing off psite don't carry a transceiver especially when "in bounds". You can manage the risks by understanding the conditions and terrain and getting advice.
@grum nice photos.
