If you’re one of those that like free skiing or snowboarding in unmarked or unpatrolled areas, you must be aware of the risks and the constant danger of avalanches.
A while back we featured the North Face Patrol 24 ABS which was specifically conceived for this type of situations. There are also other solutions on the market to help you in the unfortunate case when you’re caught in an avalanche and today we’ll take a look at some avalanche transceivers made by Ortovox.
A transceiver is basically a gadget that will allow the rescue teams to locate you and save you in case you’re caught in an avalanche. The Ortovox transceivers are high quality, battery operated gadgets that are able to read the victims position and transmit the information to the rescue teams. In average, the Ortovox transceivers have a weight of around 250 grams, based on the model, they can be discovered down to 50 meters below the snow level and they can locate multiple snow burials.
