snow travel and ice axe self arrest training class2 - May 2, 2015

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
Hopefully there will be still be some snow left! Carol Masheter, Lubos Pavel, Brad Yates and anybody else who wants to help will be teaching basic alpine snow travel, self arrest with ice ax and crampon basics. We will practice on ski runs at Alta which will be closed by this time of year. Ice ax required, crampons optional and wear clothing practical for rolling around in the snow! If you do not own or are unable to borrow an ax, the club has a limited number to rent ($5.00) for the class, please reserve in advance. Post class an optional short hike with more glissading practice will follow.
