THE GEAR

  • All guests have a radio with them at all times out in the field to communicate with the guides, other guests, or the lodge.
  • All guests are supplied with Avalanche transceivers and given basic training.
  • All Guests are supplied with an avalanche airbag backpack. Each backpack has a collapsible shovel, an avalanche probe.

  • Your personal equipment is your safety gear too – keep it maintained and in excellent condition. All equipment brought by guests must be reliable and able to operate safely in extreme conditions.
  • If you have powder skis you love then bring them – the same goes for snowboards! Skis with waist widths above 110mm are perfect for our terrain. We also have demo skis and snowboards on site for guests who don’t have suitable equipment.

Avalanche AirBag

BCA Float Bags

All guests at Keefer Lake Lodge are given a BCA Float pack avalanche airbag to use during their trip. These packs are mandatory and come complete with shovel, probe and water bottle. You will have enough room to store extra layers as well. You will be shown how to fit and deploy the pack by one of our guides. 

Guests can not bring their own packs.

Avalanche Safety Equipment

BCA Tracker S - The Latest Technology

Each guest is given a BCA Tracker S Avalanche Tranciever. At the beginning of each tour all guests go through training that show you how to use the device, get familiar with it and how to wear it. Each night after skiing our guide team checks each beacon and makes sure it is functioning properly and has fresh batteries.

Guests will not be allowed to use their own transceivers, probes or shovels please leave yours at home.

Safety Radio

Communications

Stay in touch, stay safe. All guests have a radio with them at all times out in the field to communicate with the guides, other guests, or the lodge. These radios are pre-programmed and easy to use. We will show you how to properly use them during your guide briefing.
