budget constraints. Dont you realise what one of these things cost per hour?
Gee....being so new to this game and all.....I suppose not......why don't you enlighten us will you?

If the Winch decides to pack it up and go on holiday....and the patient is in a place the helicopter cannot land or do a nose in or one skid touching landing.....and the Ground Team suggests there is no real safe way to get your guy off the mountain or to a safe landing would you do it?

Do remember the reason you are out there....that being getting the victim and the ground crew off the mountain safe and sound!

Do you just throw your fixed line over the side and carry on or use your winch in a fixed length mode (if you can) and just get cracking without any training in the procedure?
