You are solely responsible for the decisions you make and actions you take in the backcountry. Your decisions could save lives or end your life and the lives of others. The burden is on you to educate yourself as to the risks of avalanche and what you can do to mitigate the chances that you or those in your party are caught in an avalanche.

Purchasing, Renting, or Demo’ing an Avalanche Safety Kit from Tin Shed Sports or any other sporting goods supplier in no way lessens the risk of injury or death to you or others. It only serves to assist in the rescue and recovery process should you or others be involved in an avalanche. 

Get Avalanche Educated:
If you do not have your Avy 1 certification, we strongly encourage you to get that education before proceeding into the backcountry.
