I stopped by NAOI's Avalanche Awareness & Snowmobile Safety Training event.

It was held at the Menard Sports Complex and the parking lot was packed with cars.

Dorothy Adler had setup a demonstration on how to extract a snowmobile without a come-along. Using her climbing rope that had served her well on Mount Denali, a pulley and carabiners to create a pulley system.

The little guy in the picture was able to wiggle the snowmobile.

But kids just a couple years older were able to move the 800 pound snowmobile several feet.

Dorothy is pointing to the pulley and Steve Lovelace, who taught the recent Cold Water Safety class is standing to her left.
