Participant Information

image found on petzl.comIt can be difficult to be motivated to practice rescue skills.  It's easier to be motivated if other people are going.  Here is your motivation!  We are a group of friends intending to practice crevasse rescue, self-arrest, and avalanche transceiver skills.  Excellent opportunity to gear test and get your systems dialed.

You are excepted to be knowledgeable in the skills that you wish to practice, as there will be no formal instruction provided.

Please use the provided planning forum topic to coordinate with others on skills you wish to practice.


  • Organizer will be unavailable for questions due to Saturday trip
  • Organizer is unavailable to coordinate carpooling:  if you wish to carpool, please organize among yourselves.
  • Prior to 8am Sunday, organizer will post a confirming post in the planning forum that the practice is going ahead (the group from the Saturday Harvey trip may be too tired to drag themselves out of bed Sunday morning).  Participants are welcome to go ahead with their own practice if the organizer (or any of those from the Saturday trip) are unable to make it.
