Mountain Safety

Glacier travel and mountain navigation are both basic skill-sets needed when your passion takes you high on the mountain, and off the beaten path.

Do you want to learn how to use a map and compass to navigate in the mountains? You're in the right spot! Join us this summer for a fun day of theory followed by an outdoor activity to hone your new skills.
This course blends a full day of “crevasse rescue” with essential glacier travel skills that will teach you how to avoid falling in a crevasse in the first place! Classroom theory focuses on aspects of glaciology that will guide your route choices.
This course will teach you the skills you need to haul a person out of a crevasse, as well as how to climb out of a crevasse on a rope.
