Avalanche Gear

Resist the urge to leave heavy, bulky safety gear in the car—buy light and compact shovels and probes where appropriate. What makes sense on a sunny, consolidated spring day may well be irresponsible when conditions change.

For beacons I like the Pieps Micro. I do recommend a metal shovel; Voile's XLM is light and strong.
