Practice your Mountaineering Skills Above the Seymour Ski Area
We will travel up from the Seymour Ski Area to practice a full range of mountaineering techniques and skills on steep slopes. We may encounter very steep slopes and rugged terrain.
Every participant is responsible for assessing the conditions and contributing their knowledge and opinion to ensure a safe outing for everyone.
This is Not a course! Assess your abilities carefully.
Participants should have experience climbing alpine routes rated PD or greater. We may encounter AD.
Medical Info: any info that should be shared with the organizer(s), please send an email and/or phone ASAP. For example, if you are very allergic to bee/wasp bites, or you are taking medication that could be vital information to First Aid Responders. Anything you choose to share will remain private.
Cancellation: We'll check the weather forecast for where we're going the evening before we meet. If the weather forecast does NOT appear to be adequate for a safe outing then the trip will be cancelled and everyone will be notified by email/telephone.
