Backcountry Access Essentials Package -

Besides experience and training, staying safe in avalanche terrain hinges on a trifecta of gear: beacon, probe, and shovel. Backcountry Access took all the guesswork out of assembling such a kit and outfitted the Essentials Package with all three tools. Inside, you'll find the most widely used beacon on the market, the Tracker DTS, the best-selling B-1 Ext shovel with extending handle, and the lightning-fast assemble 240 Probe. Whether you're a novice taking his or her first steps beyond the rope or you're a seasoned vet looking for simplicity and reliability, this package contains everything you need to locate a burial victim quickly, find and mark the burial beneath feet of snow, and then save a life by digging deep and fast—that's the trifecta at work. 


  • Burly, lightweight B1 Extendable Shovel has an unbeatable strength-to-weight ratio that won’t let you down when you need to dig deep and fast

Weather and Wind:

  • Shovel blade includes a crowned edge that pierces through thick, icy debris with ease, and pre-drilled holes create attachment points for fashioning a snow anchor or rescue sled

Traction and Grip:

  • Oval-shaped shaft and t-grip handle both aid with leverage while you dig and give you the most secure grip on your shovel


  • Tracker DTS Beacon operates on the industry standard 457kHz frequency, and beacon is compatible with all other beacons on this same frequency
  • Beacon’s digital display shows both distance (in meters) and direction to the signal that you're tracking
  • Probe depth markings read in one-centimeter increments for the most accurate measurement
  • Tracker DTS operates with utter simplicity—a single push-button switches between transmit and search modes
  • Profile 240 Probe features a quick-tensioning system for fast assembly when seconds count (2014)

Exactly has listed the Backcountry Access Essentials Package provides you exactly that: The Essentials. This package includes the Tracker DTS which is the most used beacon on the market due to its rapid processor and simple to use interface. Also included is the B-1 Ext Shovel that will allow you to dig out of an avalanche and the 240cm probe that will help you maneuver through an avalanche.

Backcountry Access Essentials Package Reviews:


I have only used my new avi gear a few times, but the batteries are already going bad. I think the first day I was out, the beacon showed I was at 73% by the end of the day and by the second day of use, it had gone down to 47 and then precipitously dropped to the 20s. I will be replacing the batteries ASAP and then, hopefully the beacon will function fine. So, I recommend testing the batteries in your kit before heading out in the backcountry!

This was a great package and at a really good deal on I saw it on sale and picked it up. Very easy to use and all items are lightweight. No beacon is easier to use and the shovel and probe are super sturdy. Very happy with this purchase.

This package is perfect. High quality avy gear in one package for a reasonable price, and now that it is on sale the whole package is cheaper than most of the beacons themselves.
The gear has not failed me yet, and I hope it never will!

I just got this package and so far have only been able to play with it a bit, but it is awesome. I love that the beacon can find multiple beacons. Super easy interface and very user friendly.
