Stay Safe With Snowboard Avalanche Gear
When snowboarders venture out in the backcountry where the risk of avalanches is high, they should always carry avalanche equipment with them. The three essential items that have saved many lives in the past are a transceiver, shovel and probe. This snowboard avalanche equipment can be carried in purpose-built snowboard or ski backpacks that make it quick and easy to access the gear in emergency situations.
Many snowboarders choose to use a splitboard as their favourable set-up in the backcountry. Splitboards are separated longways to be used as two skis for climbing uphill then reconnected as a snowboard for riding downhill again. You will find splitboards within our Snowboards category.
