Glacier Skills

This two-day workshop covers the basic components of glacier travel and crevasse rescue. The course can serve as a refresher for those with previous glacier mountaineering experience or introduce the necessary skills for mountaineers looking to climb their first glaciated peaks. The course starts with an in-town park day to review equipment and gear used in glacier travel and to practice haul systems used in crevasse rescue. Following this, the group will head to Mount Hood or Snoqualmie Pass to practice these systems in the snow and finish with mock rescue drills to put it all together.



 $450-600 (sliding scale, scholarships available)

NOTE: Scholarship applications are due April 1st
