A complete ski touring equipment consists of an avalanche transceiver, which is called avalanche transceiver for short, a Probe and a shovel.
A ski touring avalanche kit belongs in the luggage of every trip. On the slopes there is a very low risk, moreover there is usually someone on the spot and quick help is guaranteed.
