Plan, train, and prepare with our selection of avalanche transceivers at Snow + Rock.
When undertaking a search and rescue mission in an avalanche situation, time is a precious resource and minutes can be the difference between life and death. Always stay safe in the backcountry with our selection of avalanche transceivers and safety equipment. An essential before undertaking any off-piste or back-country ski or snowboard trip, avalanche transceivers emit a pulsing radio signal strong enough to get through the snowpack, which is picked up by the receiving unit, directing rescuers to your exact location with both audio and visual cues. These transceivers work under worldwide industry standards and make up one of the most important pieces of your avalanche safety equipment.
The purchase of all the necessary equipment to venture into the unknown is one thing, being able to use and implement the technology in any situation that can arise is another altogether. We implore anyone that is looking to take on these kinds of adventures to undergo regular, certified training and practice how to use each part of your avalanche kit extensively before placing others' lives in your hands. We love the outdoors and there is nothing quite like dropping into an untouched powder bowl after a long hike to find it, but please always take care of yourself and the others in your group.
