This was already done way back in the 1930s.

I think that a Creature Craft might be the way to go for avalanche rafting.
They are designed to safely protect their occupants in situations above their skill level where they have no control. And they enforce the logic from "Apacalypse Now" = "Never get out of the boat." Could be a good idea in an avalanche.

Well, duh. They carry the beer. I'm calling it right the f*ck now. You totally drain your cooler given the propensity of snow to replace the loss. Provided you are alive.

On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.
