Participant Expectations:

  • All decisions shall be made and discussed with a full group.
  • Speaking up in the outdoors is difficult and I understand that, but I hope to be a friend and that you feel open to chatting or speaking up more. I certainly encourage that.
  • All of my participants have their thinking hats on and be equal participants in route selection and decision-making. 
  • Everyone in the group will take responsibility to read the weather and avalanche forecast and be prepared with avalanche gear if traveling in the backcountry, especially in and out of avalanche terrain.
