Backcountry Access BC Links Radio - Review
They say information is power and with regards to backcountry skiing nothing could be more accurarte. To demonstrate this point is the fact that you’ll never see a guide without a radio. It is also true that as recreational backcountry skiers we should all be carrying some sort of communication device be it a two-way FSR (Family Radio Service) or UHF/VHF radio. Communication within a large group or just with your ski buddy is limited at the best of times while backcountry skiing. It could be that you are in thick trees and your voice simply doesn’t carry or you are spread out along a ridge with howling winds that muffles your message; however whatever the scenario communication is still crucial. You need to ensure everyone is happy and healthy in your group and on-board with the ever changing game plan. Managing terrain is the best way to avoid avalanche danger and discussions should be occurring regularly throughout the day as conditions, energy levels and weather change. The Links Radio allows these discussions to happen on an ongoing basis rather than only when the group is all together.
