Meet BCA
BCA has always been about high-performance backcountry riding, starting in 1994 with our Alpine Trekker ski touring adaptor. This product enabled aggressive skiers to “send” backcountry lines not feasible on the telemark gear of the time. Since then, skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling have gone to a completely new level of power and athleticism. And avalanche safety gear - BCA Tracker transceivers, Float airbags, BC Link radios, avalanche shovels and probes have become the 'must-haves' for backcountry travel. Our BCA athletes and ambassadors represent this new level of athletic talent and dedication to backcountry safety. At BCA, we don't just send, we always return.

Avalanche Probing 101
This video takes you through the pinpointing or probing stage of an avalanche rescue. This is not a substitute for an avalanche class. Get educated before heading into the winter backcountry. Find an avalanche course near you.

Shoveling is the most time consuming phase of an avalanche rescue. This video takes you through some basic shoveling techniques using 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 shovelers. Be sure to take an avalanche class before heading into the winter backcountry

About Backcountry Access Gear

In the beginning BCA was a humble garage based company with a mission to save lives in the backcountry, not just sell backcountry skiing and snowboarding products. BCA prides themselves and their backcountry gear for being the the leader in the industry, but also an educator. Backcountry Access toutes the slogan "fresh tracks and fresh ideas" and they deliver. Their research has helped put some of the best beacons, probes, avalanche shovels, snow study tools, and now airbags on the market. Skiing and snowboarding in the backcounty is still dangerous, but with gear from BCA you will at least approach snow safety with the tools for survival.
