Stay safe on the mountain with BCA and some of the best selling avalanche gear in this BCA DTS Tracker 2 Package.
The Tracker 2 offers the industry's fastest, most precise pinpointing, triple antennae, instantaneous real time display and the same easy-to-use interface as Tracker DTS.
An intuitive mechanical search/transmit switch makes it easier to use "out of the box".
The Tracker 2 is very slim and lightweight, in fact 23% lighter than the Tracker DTS. The switch to go into search mode is very easy to use and the speed of picking up a transmitting transceiver is superb.
Multiple burial victim lights and three antennae make this transceiver a sophisticated and reliable piece of equipment for any avalanche rescue team.
The pulse rate of information received takes you straight to the victim in record time and there is no time lag in information due to the super fast processor
The Terrawest Core Shovel is a light, extremely practical shovel with a great strength-to-weight ratio, built for use by all off-piste skiers or back-country expeditions.
This is an all Aluminium shovel that is collapsible into 3 parts for efficient transport, or 2 parts for fast assembly in an emergency.
The telescopic function also means that the shovel can be used at full length, for maximum power, or at a shorter length for the greatest possible efficiency of movement in tighter spaces.
A classic T-Style grip means this shovel is easy to use and a strong, anodized Aluminium (6061), means the blade will not fail, regardless of load or conditions.
Blade size: 28cm by 22cm.
82cm maximum length and 66cm option for shorter shovelling.
Lightweight, fast and safe: The ALU 240 LIGHT is the probe for all weight-conscious winter sports enthusiasts. Weighing in at just 235 grams, it is incredibly light and ready to use in just seconds thanks to the quick-assembly strap and quick-lock assembly system.
The Probe has The tension can be quickly and easily set by means of the optimized adjusting screw. The large probe tip, which has a significantly larger diameter compared to the probe elements, ensures improved penetration.
We have also optimized the probe segments so that they now have a more compact pack size. The ALU 240 Light therefore fits easily into your tour backpack.
As with all our probes, this 240cm-long model features a visual guide system with depth markers, a clear 1-meter marker and a practical quick-release cover.
VISUAL GUIDE SYSTEM
The intuitive visual guide system provides you with quick and clear information about the victim‘s depth at all times. You can perfectly ADAPT YOUR SHOVELING STRATEGY and save important time thanks to the clear 1m marker, CONTRASTING DEPTH SCALE and COLORFUL END SEGMENTS. The bottommost segment in neon orange indicates when you are approaching the victim.
The quick-assembly strap makes immediate OPENING AND ASSEMBLY possible IN ONE MOTION, without first having to take the probe out of its cover.
Tracker 1 uses 2 antenna. The Tracker 2 and Tracker 3 use 3 antenna. The 3rd antenna is used during the last stage of the search to pin point the accuracy by the distance indication, which eliminates the "null spot/spike" that occurs when the receiving antenna is perpendicular to the flux field direction. This will make the Tracker 2 appear much smoother in the final search stage. The Tracker 3 operates the same 3 antenna system as the Tracker 2 but is almost 30% faster.
The antenna in the Trackers 2 + 3, immediately on start up and then periodically once switched on, balance themselves against each other whilst taking into account temperature to make the directional information more accurate.
The Real Time Display on the Trackers 2 + 3 processes the input signal instantly and updates the display at the same time. This is to prevent users overshooting the target transceiver as they tend to move faster when they get near the target.
During Signal Lock-On, the Tracker 1 displays all signals received within 10 metres and then locks onto the strongest signal and hides the others. The Trackers 2 does this from any distance and will only ever guide you to the strongest signal (i.e. the closest). You can override this by going into special mode however, and the Tracker 3 has extra options of suppressing any of your multiple burial signals in any direction or distance.
The Trackers 2 + 3 have a multiple burial light that comes on to alert you that although you are only seeing one transceiver, there are multiple signals present. If the light is flashing (in time with the beeps) it means the Tracker believes these signals are very close together.
The reception range of the Tracker 2 is greater by 10m that that of the Tracker.
The Tracker 2 + 3 are also quicker to put back into transmit mode in the case of a secondary avalanche.
The Tracker 3 is 30% lighter, smaller and faster than the Tracker 2.

How to Shovel Correctly:
Beacon Search Probing
The pinpoint search (within three meters) is the trickiest part
of a beacon search. A probe can quickly confirm the location and depth of burial.
Probes with depth markings aid in determining exact depth
and in determining the appropriate excavation area size.
From your lowest distance reading, probe 10 in (25cm)
apart in an expanding spiral pattern.
Since the pinpoint search is done along the snow surface, insert
probe perpendicular to the surface, not straight down.
After striking the victim, leave in place and start shoveling
downhill of the probe.
Recommended probe length: 1.8 to 3 meters.
Performed if beacons are not worn or not functioning.
Probe up to 6 feet deep (1.5 meters) in likely burial spots.
These include the fall line below last-seen-area; around the
victim’s equipment on surface; above and below rocks &
trees; depressions, curves, and the toe of the debris pile.
Studies show that avalanche victims rarely survive below 6
feet (1.5 meters). Therefore a live recovery is more likely if
you probe more areas than if you probe deeper.
Recommended probe length: 2 to 3 meters.Finding your serial number on the BCA DTS Tracker 2
