The Best Ski Walkie Talkies-Buying Guide
Are you looking for the best walkie talkies for skiing or snowboarding? Read on this Buying Guide for best ski two-way radios, hope this will help you.
First Could you please answer me a question? When you’re packing your bags for family/team ski trip, which communication gear will you take?
Maybe some people will answer Cell-phone. Yes, cellphone has become the most important communcation tool. But when you go skiing to the mountains, you will not get the great reception in the hills away from camp. Because lots of ski resorts are located in remote areas. So lots of places with no phone signals.
Using two-way radios when skiing is a great idea.
1, A walkie talkie helps you stay in touch with your group or family. It will offer you an important function- Safety and communication. If you find yourself in a sudden issue, just Press the ptt to talk to the leader or camp.
2, Also walkie talkies are a simple and affordable communication gear. You do not need to download anything or set anything, you can just press the PTT to talk to others, just make sure the working channels between two radios are same.
3, When skiing, we wear the hats and helmets, so even if you’re only one arm away from your partner, when you are speaking to him/her, he/she cannot hear each other.
