Participant Information

This is a two day course put on my the Mountain Skills Academy and Adventures (MSAA; formerly Whistler Alpine Guides) for skiers, mountaineers, and backcountry travelers who want to refine their skills in navigating alpine terrain, regardless of conditions and weather. The course will cover using topographical maps, compass, online tools, guidebooks, and GPS. 

The full description of the course including a detailed itinerary and curriculum can be found here: https://www.mountainskillsacademy.com/courses/mountain-navigation-whistler-squamish/
