Be Prepared #2of3

29th December 2011

Shovel, probe and avalanche transceiver are three pieces of avalanche safety equipment for travel in avalanche terrain. The shovel and probe have multiple uses. The probe is good for getting a sense of layers in the snowpack and depth of snow cover. The transceiver is worn (not as in the photo) under the outer layer of clothing, quickly accessible for immediate use if required. We showed briefly the knowledge and kit in Part 1 & 2, watch this space for Part 3.
