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.
BCA’s Send and Return video series is all about riding hard in the backcountry–according to the avalanche conditions. In episode two, “Chasing BC Pillows with the Canadian Hosers,” Riley Leboe, Mike Henitiuk, and Matt Margetts use their snowmobiles to access some stellar backcountry skiing outside Stewart, British Columbia, including some big pillow lines. This childhood group of friends is famous for their big mountain films “Seeking Nirvana – A Series of Strange Adventures” and renowned for taking avalanche safety seriously when filming in the backcountry. They keep their eye on the recent storm snow and a buried surface hoar layer.
