Backcountry safety

James Stentiford Talks about The equipment you should take with you when going out into the Backcountry on a snowboard and how to use it.

Basic Avalanche Equipment

  • The Transceiver(or beacon). This device allows you to locate another person in an avalanche.
  • Probe. This is so that you can probe down to more accurately find the person once you have found their rough position with the transceiver.
  • Shovel. And this is to dig them out.
  • Helmet. Always a good idea.

This is not a replacement for formal avalanche training. If you plan to go out the backcountry you must make sure that you have the necessary skills and equipment to make the right decisions
