New Transceiver Park at Nevis Range to encourage Back Country safety
Posted Monday 30th January 2012, 9:50 am by Dunx
A new Transceiver Park at Nevis Range is now open for practicing search and rescue scenarios using transceiver, shovels and probes.

The park is for all mountain users to encourage better use of avalanche transceivers. Nevis Range recommends that all skiers, boarders and mountaineers accessing any back country terrain and in particular the Nevis Range Back Corries can use a transceiver, shovel and probe.

The area for transceiver practice has transmitting units buried in the snow. They can be switched on or off from a central control box in order to enact simple single searches to multiple searches. The probing area has a variety of buried items that can be searched for using probing techniques.

The Park is located at the top of Alpha tow in the ski area, an area known for good snow cover and easily accessed on foot, ski or snowboard. Nevis Range Ski Patrol are able to provide informal help and advice at the Park. Informal and free Transceiver Park Workshops will be running throughout the winter, starting next weekend (11/2/12).

Full information is available at Nevis Range and on the website.

Transceivers, shovels and probes can now be hired at Nevis Range Equipment Hire.

The Park is free to use and a lift pass is required to access the hill. A donations box is located at the Park and funds will be used for the continued development of the Park.
