This course blends a full day of learning the rope skills necessary to perform a 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. The half-day classroom session is followed by a half day of introduction to the rope skills involved in glacier rescue. We will then spend a full day on the glacier practicing all of these skills.
