This eight hour rescue clinic will focus on avalanche rescue skills for small recreational groups.
Expect to be in the field the entire day with outside lectures, combined with hands on training.

You are required to have a fully operational modern avalanche transceiver, an avalanche shovel (no plastic blades) and an avalanche probe. Also, you must have your own registered snowmobile/snowbike that is in good working order.

In this course you will learn to:

• Wear & operate an avalanche beacon.
• Properly carry and assemble an avalanche shovel and probe.
• Effective probing and shoveling strategies.
• Perform a mock companion rescue (pinpoint, probe, fully extricate an object) in simple terrain in less than 5 minutes.
• Know how to practice these skills frequently and maintain rescue equipment.


Transportation on your own. You must also have your own registered, snowmobile/snowbike in good working condition. Bring a helmet, wear appropriate clothing and provide your own lunch. This clinic will tentatively meet meeting at Canyon Creek (north of Columbia Falls) in the Flathead National Forest.
Fee: $50.00
