Field Session: Saturday, February 21st, 2015, 10am-2pm, location TBD

Cost: $20 donation to the Friends of GNFAC

This six-hour clinic will take place in two parts. The first session, held at REI will cover all types of avalanche rescue gear and discuss what is needed to quickly and effectively rescue your partner.  A discussion of rescue techniques and basic first aid will also be discussed. For each session, each participant must bring their own avalanche beacon, shovel, probe and pack.

The field session will be held entirely outdoors. Be prepared to travel over snow with ski/skins, waxless skis or snowshoes. Boot-packing will not be allowed. Come prepared to comfortably participate in any weather conditions. Hot drinks, snacks and extra layers are strongly encouraged.

The course goals are to 1) learn how to wear and operate an avalanche beacon, and 2) perform a mock rescue including single and multiple burial searches.

The course will also cover the importance of beacon, probe, and shovel skills; beacon operation and search principles; demonstration and practice of initial, secondary and pinpoint search; rescue practice scenarios including group management, probing and shoveling.

 

SPACE IS LIMITED AND PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
