Origin Story

Backcountry Access

Founded by hardcore backcountry enthusiasts in Boulder, Colorado in 1994, Backcountry Access (BCA) began with humble origins. Since its inception, BCA’s primary objective was to innovate avalanche safety gear to make the backcountry a place for all to enjoy. That focus led to many landmark “firsts” for the brand, including the introduction of the first digital transceiver in 1996, the Tracker DTS. Following this momentum, BCA introduced the revolutionary Float Avalanche Airbag System, BC Link radios, and snowmobile-specific avalanche safety products, and pioneered strategic shoveling and searching techniques. Today, BCA is known worldwide as the preferred backcountry safety brand for avalanche professionals, skiers, snowboarders, and snowmobilers.
