Shopping? This is a great beacon/probe/shovel package.

As a rescuer, I've responded to avalanches that involved almost a dozen fatalities. (now in its 13th year) was created to share what I've learned about avalanche transceivers and avalanche rescue. My goal is to provide current, independent, and scientifically objective information.

You can jump to the transceiver summary if you're in a hurry, but don't forget to review the avalanche rescue information and to practice frequently.

Stay Safe,

Steve Achelis
