Information Overload?

Overwhelmed by the technical information on BeaconReviews.com? Relax! Here is the basic information you need to know:

1 Buy a good transceiver (read the test summary).
2 Understand the basics of how avalanche transceivers help you survive.
3 To find a buried victim, switch your digital transceiver to Search and follow the direction indicator until the shortest distance is displayed. (Details here.)
4 When you reach the shortest distance, probe to locate the victim. Then dig with your shovel.
5 Take an avalanche class. Practice at least monthly throughout the winter. Make sure your partners practice, too!
