Let's go and do some transceiver practice and alot get our legs ready for the ski season! Rummel Lake is an easy ski tour in simple terrain. The plan is to ski to the lake and practice multiple burial rescue. I will bring containers for transceivers and we will switch off hiding and searching for the transceivers. Please be sure to bring extra warm clothes as we will be standing around the lake during the transceiver practice. You must have AST-1 to participate in this event. But this is beginner/BITS friendly.

Helmet, Daypack (~30L), Snack, Lunch, Water, Avalanche Transceiver, Shovel and Probe, Normal Mountain Winter Clothing (i.e: warm layers, warm hat, gloves and/or mitts, heavier insulated jacket, softshell, etc.), Skiing, and/or Splitboarding Gear (e.g: skis, poles, boots, skins, etc.)
