Ortovox Announces Recall on 3+ Model Avalanche Beacons

Ortovox 3+ models running software version 2.1 are affected by a precautionary recall. Ortovox photo.

Ortovox has announced a recall on ORTOVOX 3+ avalanche transceivers running their software version 2.1 after discovering temporary disruptions of the transmission function. According to Ortovox, there have been no known accidents attributed to the software error, but thanks to further testing from their Safety Academy partners, users found the defect.

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recall affects nearly 20,000 units in the U.S., and an additional 7,000 sold in Canada.

A recall form will be available starting May 25 on the Ortovox website to return 3+ beacons and have the software updated free of charge by the manufacturer. Given the time of year, Ortovox will offer a loaner beacon for those affected by the recall and wish to keep skiing.

If you own an Ortovox Beacon, here is how to check your software version, per Ortovox’s instructions:

Push the search/send switch into the send position. For this to work, the switch has to be pushed in! Now switch on your 3+. This information will be displayed consecutively:

  • 10-digit serial number
  • Display test screen
  • Remaining battery capacity
  • INSTALLED SOFTWARE VERSION

If 2.1 is displayed: YOUR DEVICE IS AFFECTED BY THE RECALL.

If 1.1, 2.0 or 2.2 is displayed: Your device is NOT affected.

If NO NUMBER is displayed, your device is running software version 1. This device is NOT affected

In Between Chemo & a Double Mastectomy, This Woman Went Skiing…A Lot

A single drop of blood fell to the snow, making a hollow plop. Halfway up hiking a backcountry run, Dina Mishev stared down at the lone drop of red on white. More blood pooled to the point of her nose. Dina watched as another drop fell, joining the first one on the snow. The blood stared back at her, a reminder of all the reasons why she couldn’t let herself stop climbing. Fresh from her second round of chemo a few days prior, Mishev was actively ignoring the pain, nausea and exhaustion

Playgrounds: Kirkwood Sucks. Don’t Go There.

Growing up in the South Bay, it was hard not to fall in love with Carson Pass. Within a few hours’ striking distance, the narrow and often-buried alpine highway offered a stark contrast to the vast, well-trafficked thoroughfare of Donner to the North. Kirkwood — Carson Pass’ unpretentious resort — was like a sanctuary, a Shangri-La, a powder mecca that seemed lost to time — a secret that attracted like-minded people that didn’t mind waking up at 4 a.m., setting off in the middle of the

Jeremy Jones and Conrad Anker Call Out Jerrys in Funny New POW Ad

Jeremy Jones and Conrad Anker, two of the leading faces of Protect our Winters, have a new message to share: pointing out the Jerrys in Congress. Yup, the Jerrys we all know and immediately recognize on the slopes, that seem to have no idea what they are doing. In a pair of video ads made to speak to skiers and snowboarders, Jones and Anker name two politicians on the ballot this fall, California Congressman Tom McClintock, and Montana’s Matt Rosendale (running for a Montana Senate
