An awesome old timey Mountain Rescue video

This may be in black and white and the ice tools may be dated, but the scenario is real enough, when your team can do a snow evacuation as fast and smooth as the one in this movie, you'll be a real mountain rescue team!

One of these days the self-appointed cognoscenti of rescue in the US might stop selling books and giving paid-for workshops long enough for us to realize again that there's no substitute for speed, mountaineering agility and teamwork in evacuation.

By the way, by the time I got to RAF Mountain Rescue, the mountains of Scotland were in color.


By the way, it's winter out there in my driveway. Happy winter.
