RECCO REFLECTORS ADD SAFETY TO BOTH PROS AND THE VERY YOUNG RIDERS ON FREERIDE WORLD TOUR

The MM Rapaport Hargin Foundation was established in memory of the Swedish freeskiing star Matilda Rapaport, who tragically was killed in an avalanche in Chile last year. The objective is to increase safety in the mountain. As part of this, the foundation, together with RECCO Advanced Rescue Technology, is promoting a RECCO reflector collaboration. The reflector can be attached to a helmet or boot and makes the wearer searchable for professional rescuers in case of an avalanche accident.
