Participants: Anyone looking to practice/learn snow climbing skills is welcome on this trip. If you are registered for another Alpine Review trip on another day, this can be a great way to round out the weekend! Or you can attend two full days of skills training to really get tuned up for the coming alpine season.

We'll work on skills such as climbing steep snow, step kicking, self-arrrest, glissading, roping up for glacier travel, crevasse rescue, route-finding, anchors, etc. The plan for each day can be flexible to account for what participants are most keen to practice, so come with ideas!

The Plan:

Meet at Rampart Creek hostel at 7:30am to form teams and distribute group gear. From there we'll head to Parker's ridge to practice for the day.

Required Items to Bring:
Harness, helmet, mountaineering axe, moutaineering boots, prussiks, misc. carabiners/cordage/webbing (to be discussed).

Recommended Items to Bring:
Sense of adventure, humour and desire to share what you know and learn things you don't.

This trip is part of the Alpine Review.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
