Avalanche safety gear available

 


A big “thank you” to Lisa Roberts of “Raw TV,” producer of “Gold Rush,” for purchasing and renting avalanche safety equipment for their recent filming. Another “thank you” to George Campbell for donating four Tracker 2 avalanche beacons, and four sets of probe poles to the Haines Ski Club. Anyone can now rent beacons and probes at the Alaska Backcountry Outfitter store with proceeds going to the Ski Club. Here’s to safety in the backcountry!
