The first Skipass
to save lives.
Ski season 2015/16 is over.
We thank all who made it safer with SaveMe!
The First Ski Pass to Save Lives.
Each year, over 100 people are killed by avalanches in the Alps – and thousands more are buried or injured. Unfortunately, many winter sports enthusiasts still fail to carry avalanche transceivers with them – dramatically reducing their chances of survival in the event of being buried by snow.
An international consortium of the tourism, technology and disaster protection industries has now developed an innovative solution to support mountain rescue in its search for victims:
SaveMe – the first ski pass with an integrated avalanche search signal reflector.
This automatically provides better protection for every winter sports enthusiast.
How it works
1. STORE SAVE ME PASS IN OUTSIDE POCKET, AWAY FROM ELECTRONIC DEVICES SUCH AS SMARTPHONES.
2. AFTER AN AVALANCHE, MOUNTAIN RESCUE WILL SEND OUT A RADIO SIGNAL.
3. THE REFLECTOR IN THE PASS WILL BOUNCE THIS SIGNAL BACK.
4. THE VICTIM CAN THEN BE LOCATED AND FREED.
Save Me is available at the Soelden ski resort from the 2015/2016 season – simply ask about the ‘Save Me’ option when you arrive.
SaveMe increases the chances of being found in the event of an avalanche, but is not a replacement for an avalanche transceiver. Save Me does not guarantee protection from avalanches or localisation and successful rescue of victims. Winter sports enthusiasts who go off-piste should attend avalanche safety courses regularly, check the avalanche report and local conditions beforehand and take suitable equipment with them (transceiver, probe, shovel).

“A revolution in avalanche safety”
Save Me is a revolution in avalanche safety because it increases the number of people we are able to quickly locate and rescue in the event of an emergency.
“enjoy every ride to the fullest”
I visit Soelden every year to ski and occasionally go off-piste. With SaveMe, i feel safer and can enjoy every ride to the fullest.
