Of course I highly recommend that everyone brush up on their search skills before even thinking about going into avalanche terrain, the reality is that doesn't always happen. This beacon keeps it simple and straightforward. That being said, without practice your search time will definitely suffer as will your partners survival chances, so even with the tracker practice up!!! Even just one or two practice sessions can seriously sharpen searching skills and cut down on time, and that's true of all beacon models.
I gave 4 stars as opposed to 5 due to the Tracker's multiple burial tracking abilities. It has a functional system and can do advanced searches moderately well with enough practice. However, there are more advanced beacons out there that will perform better in these situations.

Above the scuffle of snow boots and jangle of nutcrackers (the standard-issue metal attachment everyone uses to grip the rope tow), benevolent banter fills the building. "You guys here for lunch?" "Picked a great weekend for it! Forecast is for these snow flurries to continue all night..." "Rock n' roll." Wearing harnesses and broad smiles, riders and sliders mingle in the kitchen, reception/dining/bar area and lounge as warm
