rumor has it that apple will be introducing shortly "airtags", like tile brand locator tags but using ultra wide band radio frequency. Anyone have any insight into whether these things would work to locate a ski buried under the snow?

Seems like it should... much higher location accuracy and 3x the distance of bluetooth.

thats what I was thinking, but I have no idea how the ultra wide band frequencies travel through obstacles like snow.
