A sad truth: most fatal avalanches are caused by humans. An even sadder truth: many are preventable. That’s part of the thinking behind BCA’s BC Link, a two-way winterized UHF radio with a clip-on smart mic due on shelves September 1, 2013. Because it’s so easy to use (as in, you don’t have dig around in your pack to find it) you and your buddies can discuss avalanche conditions as you leap-frog down a slope, or find each other after ping-ponging through the trees.
