Avalanche Safety

Venture the backcountry with a little peace in mind. Pack the avalanche safety essentials you need to stay safe on top of the snow. Our #1 recommended piece of gear is an avalanche transceiver (or beacon). Avalanche beacons direct toward an avalanche victim, without them it's like finding a needle in a haystack. Always have an avalanche beacon with you. Finding a victim is only half the battle, this is why we suggest you get the proper equipment to dig-out and treat anyone buried. Use a shovel and probe designed specifically for snow sports. Avalanche airbags are also extremely helpful when confronted with a failing snowpack. Airbag packs are like the seatbelt in your car, they can often save your life by preventing you from sinking deeper into the slide.
