A: Airway. Dig downhill of the victim to protect their airway from being impacted. B: Burial Depth. For burials of less than one meter, dig from the probe strike. For burials of greater depth, begin digging from 1.5 times the depth below the probe. C: Clear Snow to Sides. Moving snow to the sides rather than downhill will help you when digging a deep hole. D: Dig Only Once. Having to move snow more than once is inefficient and should be avoided in all but the deepest of burials.
