Product Description

BCA-build-emergency-rescue-sled-300x683

How to build an emergency rescue sled: 4 bolts and wing nuts (supplied); Cord can be used, but is not as strong. Fastening material, not supplied. We recommend two cordelettes (5m x 5 or 6mm Perlon cord), but webbing, straps from your pack, duct tape, ski straps, etc. will all work.

The RS+ EXT avalanche shovel adds a PLUS – a tool kit in its shaft that converts a RS EXT avalanche rescue shovel to emergency sled.

Hoe mode creates the ultimate tool for “strategic shoveling” and digging out stuck snowmobiles.

The BCA avalanche rescue shovel line boasts an off-the-chart strength to weight ratio, while taking up minimal storage space in your pack.

Remember, the excavation process in an avalanche rescue is where the most time can be lost or gained.
