This 2 hour informal rescue workshop is geared for all user groups. Grab your friends and join us before hitting the hills!!

WHERE:   Hatcher Pass (Gold Mint parking lot) – Look for the blue CNFAIC Avalanche trailer.

We will focus on practicing with your avalanche beacon, probe and shovel. We’ll also talk and work on strategic shoveling techniques and common mistakes.

This workshop is open to everyone and anyone, novices and experts, that recreate in avalanche terrain – snowmachiners, skiers, kicker-builders, etc!! Practicing our rescue skills is a must for all of us. This workshop will be a fun hour that could help save a life in the future. See you there!
