I am very lucky to have Anatom the importers of Back Country Access kit helping me promote avalanche avoidance and companion rescue. I went to them not because the other makes are not good, but because BCA educational backup is superb and continually developing new ideas. One such idea “Strategic Shoveling” has been incorporated by other brands (copying being the sincerest form of flattery but no one worries as it saves lives). The T1 was good but the T2 is the only “real time” beacon that’s really easy to use. The BCA products from search and rescue kit to lightweight touring is all very well thought out and as much as anything, the BCA image is bright and positive which I think brings an appeal to the young freerider or tourer. It builds on positives and not dark Nordic tragedy. At least that’s my take! So thanks to Anatom we in Scotland have more beacon training parks than some Alpine countries, a well supported SAIS, and a range of off piste safety and avalanche avoidance and rescue initiatives. Personally I find it one helluva lot more fulfilling preventing tragedy than picking up the pieces after it. Should anyone wish to purchase a beacon or any back country touring kit please give us a call. Advice and help is free.
