24 Feb 2009

The Varsity Outdoor Club Okanagan is running our second of two Avalanche Courses this March and all ACC members are welcome to join. Avalanche Safety Training Level One is an introductory course that focuses on Avalanche Awareness, how to travel and ski in the backcountry, and rescue technique.

Course dates will include two evening sessions on March 2nd and 4th as well a weekend at Apex on the 7/8th. You will need a beacon, probe, and shovel as well as some way to ascend and descend on snow. Course cost is $200. Please let me know if you are interested, have any questions, or need to borrow gear at cunningham.dylan at gmail.com
