good place to start. the best beacon is the one you know how to use, once you have more experience you will be better able to pick out equipment to fit you needs.

my opinions

probe is a little short at 240cm, but sufficient for the snowpack in alberta/canadian rockies

tracker is a solid beacon and is simple to use

the shovel is a keeper. t handle vs d handle is a decision to make after some experience. Last years bca shovels had a problem with snow filling the shaft, this had be resolved this year with a small plug in the end.
