Snow is starting to fall around the country and that means it’s time to start thinking about your setup for the upcoming season. Without a doubt, the most important part of your kit is your standard backcountry safety equipment—a shovel, beacon and probe.
We teamed up with Backcountry Access (BCA) to offer up its easy-to-use Tracker2 Avalanche Rescue Package, which includes the intuitive Tracker2 avalanche transceiver, extendable B1 avalanche shovel and the quick-deploying Stealth 270 avalanche probe. The whole kit is available on BCA’s website for just $380. As if that deal isn’t good enough, we’ve got one free kit up for grabs to any and all entrants. All you have to do is submit your email below to be entered to win.[emailpickup hide_label=”yes” placeholder=”Enter your email” success_message=”Thanks for entering.
