WHAT IT’S ABOUT
The Ski pass
That saves lives
Every year more than 5.000 people worldwide are killed, buried and badly injured by avalanches. Unfortunately, most of them don’t wear any avalanche emergency equipment – this dramatically decreases the survival odds in the case of an avalanche.
An international consortium of tourism, technology and civil protection has developed an innovative solution, to support mountain rescue in their search for casualties. SaveMe the first ski pass with a built-in positioning chip. With this, every winter sports athlete is automatically tracked and therefore protected.
THE SAVE ME PASS
HOW IT WORKS
that protects you
Every year, more than 5,000 people worldwide are buried by avalanches. Unfortunately most of them don’t wear avalanche emergency equipment and smartphone detection is too imprecise. This makes it extremely hard to ﬁnd them in time.
Sölden, one of the biggest ski resorts in Europe, has developed the first ski pass with a built-in positioning chip. With this, every skier is automatically locatable under an avalanche.
Get the pass and carry it.
The reflector in the pass returns it.
In case of an avalanche the mountain rescue immediately sends out a radio signal.
You can then be located and recovered in time.*
