This mentorship event is part of the AMP
(Alpine Mentorship Program) organized by ACC
Calgary section jointly with ACMG Guide Brent
This is a one-day overview of glacier travel
and crevasse rescue just in time for traverse/ski
mountaineering season. Maybe you want to get
on a glacier this spring but don't know crevasse
rescue, maybe it's just been a while and you could
use some practice to dust off the cobwebs. Maybe
you want to practice to be a great teammate and
not rely on the trip leader... who is going to be
at the bottom of the crevasse...
The goals/objectives are:
Glacier travel and risk assessment
Rope work for glacier travel
Building snow anchors
Ascending/descending the rope
Put your name on the waitlist.
Email your experience to Kathryn (katdavison8@gm
