Currently (as of Mar 28, 2011), there are great discounts on all avalanche beacons across the internet. It could be called even a “price war” waged by the online stores where all of them are rushing to unload their inventories before stocking up for next season.
If you have an older avalanche beacon or are looking for an upgrade this is a great deal opportunity. Because beacons are a type of gear that keep their value over long time stores are not too keen on discounting them much or often; however, it seems these are different times now.
Just a couple of examples what you can pick up for your buck:
- Ortovox 3+ is going for only $314
- BCA Tracker DTS for $231
- Mammut Pulse for only $358
- Pieps DSP for $360
- Ortovox S1 for $396
- take 2min and browse all avalanche beacons
