Learn Avalanche Safety
Backcountry Access (BCA) is North America’s leading manufacturer of snow safety equipment, including Tracker transceivers, Float airbags, shovels, probes, and BC Link radios. BCA’s mission is to save lives, not just sell products. BCA has always considered education to be just as important as the gear it makes. That’s why BCA supports avalanche education programs and forecast centers--and why the company backs up all its products with consumer education and knowledgeable customer service.
Lake Ann, WA – January 2004
We were snowmobiling in a very popular area, which was part of the problem. When the accident happened, there must have been 30 people that came to help. Even though there were only two people buried in the avalanche, there were avalanche transceiver signals everywhere.
But the Trackers worked great. Three of us converged on one signal while the others converged on the second one. We got them both out alive. The reality is that having multiple signals on the surface is actually more difficult than having multiple victims buried beneath the surface.
BCA: The most trusted name in backcountry safety.
