THOSE WHO HAVE THIS CARD:
Do you feel this is something that is truly helpful in backcountry to determine avalanche safety or is this something for the geeky gadget carriers of the backcountry?

Does it come with directions on how to use the symbols?

Take an avalanche safety course if you haven't already done so. Don't rely on gear instructions to educate yourself. You need to practice. Is it useful? Yes. But it depends what type of backcountry skiing you're doing. For day trips, probably not as much as multi-day tours.
