Is it for you?
Participants should have at some mountaineering experience and need to be already familiar with basic crevasse rescue techniques (can already tie a prussic and other knots, familiar with general anchor building principles). This is not a beginner program.
Crevasse rescue is an essential skill that needs constant upgrading in order to ensure that you deal with a crevasse emergency in the fastest and most efficient manner. We are offering two types of crevasse rescue clinics this year. The first is "Crevasse Rescue for Ski Mountaineers" and will be held at the beginning of March just as the traditional ski mountaineering season gets going. The second, "Advanced Crevasse Rescue", featured below, will be held in May and June and includes a refresher plus training in 2-man crevasse rescue. Please note that these are not beginner programs.
