Avalanche Safety Gear


Backcountry Access (BCA) is a leading manufacturer of snow safety equipment, focusing on saving lives through innovation and consumer education. That is to say, BCA offers a range of high-performance backcountry gear, including avalanche transceivers, avalanche airbags, and avalanche shovels. Their products are designed to be reliable, easy to use, and promote good decision-making in the backcountry. To that end, Backcountry enthusiasts choose BCA’s gear for its simplicity and speed.

Having the gear is great. Confidently knowing how to use it is better. With this in mind, we encourage you to join our AST courses, which run twice a month throughout the winter season. These courses provide you with the knowledge and skills to use avalanche safety gear confidently, ensuring that you’re well-prepared for any backcountry adventure.

Hiring a guide is another good option to be safer in the backcountry. Our guides are experts of the area and can provide valuable knowledge and experience for your trip. We offer private tours both off-piste or backcountry, together with our Usagi Group Tour – tailored for adventurers at the beginning of their backcountry journey. More details here.


One of the best experiences that we had in Japan. The resorts didn't have the best snow but these guys still found us some sweet spots. Great, well trained group. Someone you can trust and we would definitely do it again."Justin (US)
