Unlock the gates with dependable gear, invaluable knowledge, and trusted ski buddies.

As big and untracked as that bowl outside the gates looks, a certain level of avalanche risk always lurks. Minimize that risk by educating yourself, using the Mammut Element Plus Avalanche Package, and choosing knowledgeable companions. This solid avy gear package includes all the hardware (but not all the know-how) you'll need to prepare for traveling in avalanche terrain: the advanced Element Barryvox beacon, the sturdy Probe Plus, and the Alugator Light shovel.

The first component of the Element light Avalanche Package is the Element Barryvox Avalanche Beacon. Mammut's top-notch and lightweight (just 7.4 ounces) Barryvox has 60 meters of digital range and a minimum battery life of 200 hours for greatest possible chance of success. Batteries are also included, so the beacon is ready-to-use right out of the box.

The second component is the Alugator Light Shovel. It's made for backcountry skiers and snowboarders who want to shave every possible ounce from their kit without losing function. Aluminum construction helps you cut through tough avalanche debris when it really counts. Mammut also included an extendable handle to give you better leverage for digging test pits.

The final element of the kit is the Mammut Avalanche Probe Plus. It puts 280cm of aluminum at your disposal. A Dyneema cord minimizes weight, and the telescopic lock makes for quick, easy interlocking. This aluminum probe collapses down to seven 44cm-long sections and comes with instructions and an emergency plan.

Great package for getting out-of-bounds!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We got a couple of these packages for our AIARE Level 1 course, and were very impressed at the functionality. The range and accuracy of the Element transceiver was equal to or better than any of the other models that people used in the class. On top of that, it is super simple to use (which is what you want when you NEED to use it). The probe and shovel are decent as well, and seem sturdy. Both are packable into a standard size bag. One note on the Element harness - if you are a small person, you might have trouble getting it as tight as you want. This can be easily fixed by doubling over some of the material and sewing it together with some heavy-duty thread.
