Participant Information

Get together to review search procedures as well as to facilitate discussion on avalanche rescue. I will have targets buried which we can dig up. I am aware of Seymour's "Beacon Basin" at the north end of their parking lots. We likely 
will not use this facility since we cannot dig up these targets.

Meetup and logistics
Meeting just outside of Enquist Lodge @ Mt Seymour (10U 503608.51E 5467751.98N). Please click the link and look at the satellite image. People are often confused exactly where to meet. We will be using the shoulder to the south of the cutblock where the long removed Ridgeline Chair used to be. If you arrive late, please walk 50m south and meet us at the cutblock we're using. The rough perimeter of the area we use is here link to Gaia map.

Start at 5:30 PM. Wrap up at 7:30 ish. Feel free to arrive late if you can't leave work early enough. I am open to staying as late as people would like to search for targets or talk about snow science.

COVID-19 screening link
After answering the questions, the tool must return a "You do not need a COVID-19 test at this time" or a "You don't appear to have symptoms of COVID-19" result.

I am not a guide. I am a member of the Canadian Avalanche Association, but this is not a course. I just like snow science and shreducation.
