Responsible backcountry travel requires carrying basic avalanche safety gear like the Backcountry Access Stealth 240 Avalanche Probe. This lightweight and compact aluminum avalanche probe will round out your companion rescue gear nicely. The 240-cm probe deploys easily and is designed to aid in the search of avalanche debris for a buried victim. Thanks to its laser-etched depth markings, the Stealth 240 also serves as an integral snow study tool for checking snowpack depth and performing snow stability tests like the Rutschblock and extended column tests.
The Backcountry Access Tracker DTS is the best-selling avalanche beacon in the world because of its sturdy design and ease of operation. The original Tracker DTS rolled out in 1997 and set the industry standard for simplicity and durability. Dual antennae quickly process incoming signals and send information to a proprietary micro-processor that displays direction and distance in bright LED lights. While practice is still imperative, the intuitive simplicity of the Backcountry Access Tracker DTS make it the go-to beacon for professional mountain guides, ski patrolmen, and recreational backcountry skiers who need to work quickly and effectively when the avalanche chips are down.
Responsible backcountry skiing requires carrying essential avalanche safety tools like those in the Backcountry Access Tracker Essentials Package. Including the time-tested Tracker DTS avalanche transceiver, B-1 EXT Shovel and the Stealth 240 Probe, this backcountry kit sets you up for companion rescue.

B-1 EXT Shovel
The Backcountry Access Tracker 2 avalanche beacon maintains the classic simplicity and ease of use of its predecessor, the DTS Tracker. However, the new Tracker 2 boasts a third antenna and real-time LED display to boost performance and save time when engaged in the fine search for a buried victim. Other improvements include an ergonomic mechanical pull switch to change from transmit to receive mode, an elegant new harness system, and a significantly thinner profile. While none of these changes alone are crucial, together they make the Backcountry Access Tracker 2 the new gold standard for a bombproof and user-friendly avalanche beacon.
The Backcountry Access B-1 extendable shovel packs away small, but the handle extends for ergonomic digging. When you want to travel light but be ready to move snow quickly and efficiently, the Backcountry Access B-1 extendable shovel is the tool for the job.
The Backcountry Access B-2 extendable shovel is a perfect engineering compromise. It packs small, but the handle extends to provide mechanical advantage when you need to excavate an avalanche victim. For those who are committed to safety in the mountains, the Backcountry Access B-2 extendable shovel is the ideal piece of rescue gear.
