The Backcountry Access Beacon Park is now open for the 2012-2013 season!
Mt. Bachelor, in partnership with Backcountry Access (BCA), hosts a FREE Beacon Training Park near the base of the Red Chair adjacent to the West Village parking lot. Mt. Bachelor welcomes everyone to come practice beacon skills in a safe, educational and fun environment. If you dont have a Beacon, you can purchase or demo a beacon at Bachelor Ski & Sport... which is conveniently located next to the Beacon Park at West Village.
The Backcountry Access Beacon Park is a training system created to make it easier for recreationists and pros to practice with their transceivers. It features 4-10 permanently buried transmitters wired to a central control panel. To change the scenario, just flick the on/off switches on the control panel. Instead of digging holes and reburying beacons all day, you spend your valuable time actually practicing with your transceiver.
