5 of the best Avalanche Packs
Spend a lot of time skiing off-piste? Then a good avalanche pack is money well spent
The best way to survive an avalanche? Don’t get in an avalanche at all: There’s no replacing snow safety skills and good decision making (check out these courses if you want to build your knowledge) but even the most knowledgeable, risk-adverse riders in the world have been caught out, and airbags have saved lives.
“For regular off-piste skiers, they are worth it.” says Scott from Edge & Wax. “Prices are dropping, and they do increase your odds of survival. We had a customer caught with five others when wearing an airbag. He alone didn’t need major medical help, and it was him being able to assist that helped the others survive.”
