EquipmentBasic avalanche safety equipment is included in the cost of our courses. However, students who already own some equipment are encouraged to train with what theyll be using in the future. We have a variety of beacons, probes and shovels available for students to test and compare. Our equipment includes the latest models of Ortovox, Tracker and SOS rescue transceivers, plus shovels and probes from at least five different manufacturers. This will provide you a unique opportunity to prepare for an informed equipment purchase. Select the Links page on the navigation bar for manufacturer home pages.
