PARTNERS

All alpine organizations, associations, professional and trade organizations agree that it is essential to remain on the surface since that is where your chances of survival are greatest. Those who have to live with the avalanche risk on a daily basis know about the dangers of the mountain and equip themselves as well as possible. This is why not only freeriders and snowboarders but also mountain rescue organizations, piste patrollers, mountaineering schools and heli-skiing companies use ABS airbag systems.
