GCH Teams Up With A Snow Safety Industry Leader

Posted by & filed under Heliskiing.

One of Great Canadian Heli-Skiing’s Lead Guides and our Operations Manager, Rob Dalinghaus, spent a fair bit of time researching the various types of avalanche transceivers on the market today.

Rob knew that the ideal choice would be a beacon that was very accurate, yet simple to use. To that end, he opted for the Tracker2 from Backcountry Access. The Tracker2 actually has THREE antenna, making searching that much faster and accurate.

Backcountry Access are renowned leaders and pioneers in snow safety. In fact, they spend more money on research than they do on marketing their products! Like here at Great Canadian, safety is the #1 priority at Backcountry Access before anything else. BCA supply many reputable heli-skiing operations and ski patrols with their safety products.
