Avalanche transceiver (digital) $10.00
Avalanche probe $3.00
Snow shovel $3.00
Snow saw $2.50

Will it be wise to get all of the above?
I first thought you were buying the gear .. thought holy crap that is cheap. For divide you need shovel, probe, beacon and a partner.

If the snow is good, I might consider hiking twins and setup a jump. It isn't 'epic' lines or anything, but just a fun day of monkeying around.
