With a massive 60m circular range, mark and scan function for multiple burials, and an auto antenna switch that automatically adjusts to send the best signal, the Black Diamond Guide BT beacon is the industry-standard, professional-grade avalanche beacon with Bluetooth capabilities. The beacon’s Bluetooth connection allows you to manage settings, software updates and battery optimization from your smartphone, while the housing features soft-touch contact points for improved handling.In addition, it has a massive 60-meter circular range and 60-meter search strip. Throw in a self-check function for always-accurate antennas and Digital Signal Processing to account for wayward beacon signals, and the Guide BT is as reliable as it is capable. The included harness-style carrying pouch provides comfortable, streamlined storage and fast removal for beacon practice and emergency response.
Featuring a redesigned extendable handle that’s stronger and more comfortable, and a high-volume blade profile, the UIAA certified Black Diamond Transfer Shovel helps you throw as much snow as possible from the smallest footprint. Its durable, smooth-bottom blade give you clean walls in your snow pit and the versatile design works well in any backcountry situation.
Developed by the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE) to meet the American Avalanche Association (AAA) standards, the AIARE Backcountry Decision-Making Guide is an essential snow study tool for the aspiring avalanche professional or serious student. Used with a pencil, the pages are waterproof so you can collect data even on the wettest days. The AIARE field book includes the AIARE Communication Checklist, AIARE Decision Making Framework, and AIARE Observations Reference. Along with the AIARE information, you will use the 50 format pages for entering trip plans, field observations, and snow profiles to make educated decisions while in the backcountry. Weight: 90 g / 3.2 ounces Dimensions: 17.5 x 11.5 cm / 7 x 4.5 in

The Smart Mic user interface is located at your fingertips: to change settings, no need to dig the radio from your pack. The battery lasts for several days without recharging, even in cold temps. Link 2.0 improves on the current BCA system, with more power, more durability, and more weather resistance.
The granddaddy of our shovel line, with hoe mode to provide added efficiency when “paddling" chunks of debris without lifting. The BCA Dozer 2H avalanche shovel is the granddaddy of our shovel line, with hoe mode to provide added efficiency when “paddling" chunks of debris without lifting. All of BCA's new Dozer shovels feature ovo-concave shafts and low-profile, "stompable" blades. The front third of the shovel blade offers a smooth surface for clean snowpit walls during snow stability tests. With BCA's flat "stomp edge" on the blade, you can penetrate just about anything by adding body weight. Auto-engaging spring pins at the blade/shaft connection make for faster, hands-free assembly/deployment. BCA shovels lie flat in your pack with no protruding ferrule or "neck," leaving more room for other backcountry gear. All BCA extendable shovels are designed to meet the UIAA standard for avalanche rescue shovels. Please see our avalanche shovels resources section below for shoveling videos, FAQs, and instructions for use.
The BCA Snow Study Kit is a lightweight, compact carrying case contains all of Backcountry Access’s essential tools for understanding snow science. Includes: Slope Meter - Measures the slope angle and use the compass for the slope aspect. Angle range: 0° – 60°. Polycarbonate Crystal Card - Includes metric grid, 2mm grid, and beveled edge (6” x 4?). Analog Thermometer - Measures the temperature gradient of your snowpack 15x Magnifying Loupe - With closed sides for wind protection. ECT Cord - Two-meter cord to cut through snow and crust for extended column tests Many avalanche courses require their students to bring their own snow study tools. By understanding the changing states of snow, you will be more so prepared for an avalanche and can prevent an accident before it happens. The more reliable data you collect, the more reliable your decision-making will be. The BCA Snow Study Kit was carefully designed in conjunction with North America’s most experienced avalanche educators to create a product with all of the necessary snow safety tools.
