Get the gear you need for backcountry skiing with the Ortovox Avalanche Rescue kit. It includes the Ortovox 3+ avalanche transceiver, the Beast avalanche shovel and the 240 Light PFA avalanche probe.

  • 3+ transceiver is able to analyze its vertical orientation when buried and transmit its signal on the transmitting antenna best positioned for searchers to pick up a signal
  • Triple antenna design allows excellent precision and pinpoint search capabilities no matter what position the victim is buried in
  • Upon reaching a victim, the searcher can press the single button to mark the found victim and immediately set out for other snow burials by simply following the visual data
  • Adjustable harness with case keeps the 3+ secure and accessible; operates on 1 AA battery
  • Sturdy Beast telescopic shovel weighs only 710g (1 lb. 8 oz.); 5052 aluminum blade and 6061 aluminum T6 shaft stand up to regular use
  • Shovel handle extends to 84cm (33 in.) to ease shoveling; compacts to 43cm (17 in.) to fit in your pack while touring
  • 240 Light PFA probe assembles quickly and weighs only 270g (9.5 oz.); centimeter markings on the probe help you determine depth of a burial
  • Probe is 240cm (7 ft. 10 in.) long when assembled; collapses down to 40cm (1 ft. 3 in.) for easy storage in a backpack
  • The Ortovox Avalanche Rescue kit also includes a Safety Academy Guide Book with tips on how to properly use your transceiver, shovel and probe
