Participant Information

Spend a few hours refreshing mountaineering basics! We're looking to practice a few skills in a convenient location close to Vancouver depending on conditions. We can snowshoe up to a spot where we can rope up and use crampons and ice axes/tools on some hard/compact snow and possibly ice. We're looking to practice steep slope travel, self arrests etc. Exposure will be moderate but real, and participants should understand this.

This is not a course and is only available to people looking for a skill refresh. I'm not teaching, and am looking to practice key skills too :)

You should know what to bring and have the appropriate equipment and training if participating. 

Carpooling welcome - use forum to arrange.

Timing: mid-morning to early afternoon. Exact details TBD.
