Beacon Training Park

Like to recreate in the backcountry? Practice using an avalanche beacon at Mission Ridge. Located on the hillside behind the Hampton Lodge, the Beacon Training Park is a system created to make it easier to practice with your transceiver. It features six permanently buried transmitters wired to a central control panel. To change the scenario, you can just flick the on/off switches on the control panel. 

PLEASE NOTE: The Beacon Training Park is intended for transceiver and probe practice only (no shovels). Digging is NOT permitted.

Solar Powered Beacon Checker

There is a beacon checker located by the trail map at the Summit immediately after you unload Chair 2. This beacon checker has been provided so that you can check that your avalanche transceiver is transmitting properly. Always check your beacon before heading out into backcountry terrain.
