Renting a BCA Float Airbag Backpack will give you an idea of what it is like to ride in backcountry-style terrain with a cool tool strapped to your back. Carry your skis, snowboard, or helmet in style with the added assurance of a giant balloon to deploy in emergency situations.
Please read more about BCA’s Float Systems on BCA’s website.
BCA Float packs and other airbag systems are not required to ski or ride at Silverton Mountain, but are recommended.
*$40 charge if airbag is deployed in a non-emergency situation
Looking for a Float System Canister Refill? Silverton Mountain is NO LONGER a Float System Canister Refill Station! Finding a local dive shop in Durango or Montrose on your way in is your best bet.
We only rent equipment to guests with a valid lift ticket, we do not rent gear to be used in the backcountry by other operations.
