Snow is starting to fall, and people are already venturing out for turns in the backcountry. What better way to start the season than a quick refresher on avalanche safety gear.
Dan Noakes created this handy safety video below. It’s a great video that stresses the important gear every backcountry skier/rider NEEDS: Shovel, Probe, Transceiver.
“Before you go into the backcountry you need three essential pieces of avalanche rescue equipment, a transceiver, a probe, and a shovel. This video will discuss the avalanche rescue gear and how to use it properly. This video is not intended to replace an avalanche preparedness class, so make sure to sign up for one and to check out your local avalanche center at https://avalanche.org/”
