Little frills, a lot of performance: The LVS Powder BT from Pieps

A contribution by Fabian Reichle - Bächli Bergsport

The wintry mountain world is impressive and offers a lot of new things in summer: ski tours, snowshoe hikes or ice climbing, to name just a few sports. Unfortunately, snow-covered peaks also harbor a real risk of an avalanche. Especially with the current snow conditions. Life-saving equipment in an emergency is essential. Above all a reliable avalanche transceiver. We introduce you to the Powder BT from Pieps.

The market for avalanche search devices - or LVS for short - is manageable. Nevertheless, the choice can quickly become difficult, because the differences between the models are only marginal at first glance. It is therefore worthwhile to take a close look at the details and identify personal preferences.
