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.
