"The really important thing with all this backcountry safety gear is proper decision-making," Jeremy Jones said, on his decision to make his 2013-2014 Jones Snowboards splitboard packs airbag-ready. "The airbag's there because you can never mitigate all the hazards in the mountains, but if you have to use it then you've already made some huge mistakes," Jones says.
