Being involved in an avalanche accident is every backcountry traveler’s worst nightmare. When a rider gets buried, their life is resting in the hands of their partners. Anyone who ventures into the backcountry should have basic training in avalanche rescue and be carrying the mandatory rescue gear - beacon, shovel and probe. New for 2019, we’re thrilled to begin offering two of these critical pieces of mountain safety equipment. We’ve partnered with ARVA, an industry leading avalanche safety gear manufacturer, to produce the Jones Excavator Shovel and the Jones Strike 240 Probe. Both our shovel and probe offer the ideal match of durability and performance at a competitive weight and price.
“Every winter I spend a few days early season practicing my rescue skills with avalanche safety professionals. It’s important to take time before my winter really gets firing to learn the latest rescue techniques and practice with my rescue equipment. Our new shovel and probe match exactly what I look for in my avalanche safety gear - compact, solid and lightweight.” - Jeremy Jones
