After reading that there were several deaths in Vail last year I am seriously considering just biting the bullet. I know I'll be riding out west more so why not just buy now and save the money (and possibly my life) later.

I do not disagree. You will be riding out there more than myslef so I think it is easier for you to justify it. I need to follow up with the AC dealer and that ski shop to confirm the availability of rentals. If the AC dealer is going to rent, I am going to do that. If not, I may bite the bullet and purchase. what the hell, another $700 thrown at my obsession.

I'm assuming we're talking beacons here? I'll have 1 spare with me.

As a note, I checked today packing my gear to take to Gillette, I've got to quit, any more safety gear and I won't be able to move........lol. It'll take some getting used to having the AvaLung on on top of everything else I wear.

Getting the mouthpiece in is probably going to be rough unless it's done before getting on hill.

Personally, purchasing is the way to go. You know what it has been through and know you looked it over. I would like to compare this to a parachute. Do you pack your own or take someone's word it is packed right? That is what I thought, I want to know when I pull the cord that what ever happens I had something to do with it.
