I can help as well....

For anyone in the Grand Valley (CO) area, I can hook you up if you are in need of a BCA refill. I work in the Aviation industry (for the last 20 yrs.) and can refill with dry nitrogen.

Moo's Ice cream in Jackson WY, Rick is the owner and he fills all types of tanks for avy Bags. Also very knowledgeable about all the systems, BCA, snowpulse, ABS. I just bought a couple refurb'd Snowpulse bags and he went through the whole system, showed me how to do the rebuild with the stickers and o ring, we test fired both and filled them up again.

$5 a fill

Float refill / Beacon Rental

Is there any place you can rent beacons around Dubois. Our group is staying at CCGR, arriving Dec. 27. Also wondering about BCA Float refill. Don't want to run to Jackson right away. TML won't let you keep beacons overnight.

Any help is appreciated.

Look for a paintball store. If they can fill compressed air tanks, they can fill these too.

Any Scheels sports will refill... official refill station...before I stopped there, I stopped at a scuba shop earlier this winter, where I had refilled last year, the scuba shop would not refill due to liability issues. If you need to refill your tank, do it well in advance, some places that CAN refill, won't.

refill locations rapid city sd

I stopped at Scheels and got a refill for $2. Did a test fire and stopped at a scuba shop on the west side of town. Forgot the name of the place. Charged $7.50. So if you are coming through Rapid Scheels is between exit 60 and 61 on the south side of I 90.

Could a place like airgas fill the cylinders? Or what kind of system is needed to do so? Thinking I might buy a big cylinder to fill them but not sure what is needed.
You need a step up pump system or banger cart as we like to call them at work. The bottle requires 2700 psi, even a fresh nitrogen supply cylinder is only about 2200 psi. I fill mine with dry nitrogen, unless you purchased a 5000 psi supply bottle you need a pump system to step up the pressure.

No problem -

ABS is not field re-fillable. They are nitrogen filled to I believe 4000 psi.

Snow pulse and BCA are both field fillable, they come charged with compressed air, but I have access to dry nitrogen at work so it's cake for me to refill.
