Alpine touring gear is not required for this training session. The objective is to practice companion rescue not skin up the mountain.

Note: This practice is not led by a certified instructor and is not a substitute for AST1. Everyone is encouraged to actively participate.

Only sign up if you have completed AST1 or better.

The group size is limited by the number of instructors. Generally 5 participants per 1 instructor is reasonable.

Meet at Bean Around the World at 1151 Mt.Seymour Parkway at 6pm to sign waivers. Then drive to Mt Seymour and do a gear review inside followed by 1 or 2 scenarios outside.

The agenda is:

1) Review rescue equipment, and proper technique for searching, propping and digging.

2) Split into groups and practice single and multiple burial searches and rescues.

This session will be cancelled is it raining heavily or if the roads to the mountains are hazardous.
