Ortovox recalling 3+ model transceivers due to fault

The big guns of the Transceiver world Ortovox are currently recalling a batch of their 3+ model avalanche transceivers.

The decision to recall them was made after they discovered a serious fault with the model during their search training.

All of the models that were bought after the 17th October 2012 - excluding North America - are being recalled due to the fault, which caused them to switch automatically to transmission mode after 2 minutes in search mode. And let’s face it, this is not what you want.

Once returned they will be inspected and receive a vital software update that will resolve the issue.

If you have bought one of these 3+ models then you will want to write down your serial number and pop along to the Ortovox website to check and see if your model is affected by the recall.

Or, if you want to, you can always call their hotline on +49 89 666 74 212, but you will be charged for the call. The final option, is to email rueckruf@ortovox.com.

Big White - don’t let the Australians have all the fun!

Big White Ski Resort is currently celebrating it’s 50th season and is the 4th largest ski area in Canada. It’s situated just 35 miles from the city of Kelowna in the heart of British Columbia, Canada. It has a consistent supply of dry snow, locally referred to as Okanagan champagne powder, which results in large formations of snow and ice caked onto the trees known as ‘tree ghosts’. The area is one of the best in BC for bad weather due to the high treeline which offers a break from the weather that brings over 300 inches of snow a year; it’s no wonder ‘It’s the snow’ is the resorts’ slogan.
