However, seeing as I come from a mountaineering background, there is a possibility that in the future I will buy touring gear, and do some skiing that isn’t lift served, If I do this, will I regret not buying a multi antennae beacon?
At present I have limited beacon experience (1 practice search with an Ortovox X1). Based on that experience I think that I could quickly get the hang of slowly sweeping a single antennae beacon in front of me to pick up and follow a flux line.
So my question’s are..
1. If you turned up to go skiing with me, and I told you that I had a Pieps freeride, but not to worry because I had practised using it, how would you feel?
2. How easy is it to use a Freeride once you have spent some time getting used to it?
(I’m particularly interested in answers from people who have practiced searching with a Freeride).
