In the second episode of Avalanche Awareness we cover the necessary equipment you need to help reduce risk to yourself and your companions when you're in the backcountry. It's not just having the equipment that is important, it's understanding what you need to know and, most importantly, how to use it. Graham Bell and mountain expert Peter Bilous run through what the necessary avalanche equipment is and the basic knowledge required to use it properly. Watch the series, get informed, then get training and practicing. Thanks to our partners; Arc'Teryx Backcountry Access FATMAP RECCO Avalanche Awareness - Essential Equipment For Mountain Safety
