How to choose your avalanche safety equiment? Touring has never been as trendy as now and so is freeride skiing or snowboarding. If it’s true that riding on powder feels incredibly nice and offers that unbeatable feel of freedom, but it can be dangerous. In order to make risks as low as possible, make sure you are equipped as you should (and must). The three things you have to have are a transceiver (avalanche beacon), a probe and a shovel. In case of an avalanche, you will need these 3 things to retrieve and save somebody who got caught in an avalanche. Another great feature is the airbag. It helps you float on top of the avalanche and drastically increases your odds of survival.
