Alpine Club of Canada Avalanche Transceiver Policy – May 2011

  • Participants on all mountaineering, skiing and ice climbing trips, camps and courses of the Alpine Club of Canada in avalanche terrain are required to use a modern avalanche transceiver, as recommended by the Canadian Avalanche Centre.  Recommended avalanche transceivers are digital, multi-antenna transceivers; analog and single-antenna transceivers are no longer acceptable. This policy becomes effective with the winter avalanche season 2011/2012, as of November 1, 2011.
  • ACC members are advised to take note of the manufacturer’s recommendations for the expected useful service life of avalanche transceivers.
  • ACC members are encouraged to upgrade avalanche transceivers to digital, three antenna models;
  • ACC members are also advised that the usefulness of any transceiver depends on the familiarity of the user with the transceiver. Regular practice throughout the season is strongly recommended

NOTE: Transceivers can save lives, but they don’t make you safe. Sound planning, good equipment and knowing how to use it, combined with experience, competent partners and careful judgment, are the best means of making for an enjoyable and safe winter backcountry experience.
