comment Quality/robustness of avalanche shovels
I'm saying that if you are buried, someone else will have to dig you out. One of my instructors once said something to the effect of "buy a good shovel, and always give it to someone else in your group to use for the day."

comment Why are death percentages of death from trauma in an avalanche so different between USA, Europe, and Canada?
There could certainly be something to that, the risk culture in North America could have an effect. But this question and my answer pertain to the manner in which the victims die, not simply how many die.

comment How to make a fully-enclosed tarp setup with a 1.4 x 2.4 meter tarp, for one person?
Indeed, stake down the corners so that the tarp is nice and taut and use rocks or logs to further secure the sides when you can. I've found that this keeps out virtually all rainfall. If the wind gets strong enough to move logs around, then the rain is probably the least of your worries.

comment Water filter that handles mercury?
I don't think there are any filters or purifiers that can consistently remove dangerous amounts of mercury.
