Like many  of the largest and most successful companies around,  BCA first got started in our humble garage in Colorado.  Thanks to support from our loyal customers, BCA now the biggest and most trusted name in backcountry safety worldwide.

When BCA equips you for the backcountry, we work to equip you not only with gear, but with knowledge to make informed decisions. That’s why we support all of our products with a consumer education program and the most knowledgeable customer service staff in the industry.

Our mission is to save lives, not just sell products. This is how we measure success. The bottom line: don’t get caught in the first place. Get educated, choose your terrain according to the conditions, and communicate clearly. Our hope is that you’ll never use any of our rescue gear–except for practice. We want you to be a BCA customer for life.

BCA celebrated its 20th year in 2014-15. We’re looking forward to another 20 years of backcountry riding and, most important, 20 more years of saved lives.
