Here’s two neat videos from Europe that are worth looking at, even if they are only in German. maybe someone wants to practice! The first one from Lienz, Austria http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4321392522805199777 shows helicopters being used for short haul rescues and other operations in technical rock and snow terrain. The second one is somewhat comical and shows a rescue team in action however the guy holding the camera was holding it upside down which caused a few laughs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_y-Is3J-qYAnd if you are really bored here’s a 6 minute funny one without German words showing how not to rescue someone who took a ride down the slope! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WrvFifSFzQ

Enjoy!
