You'll learn to travel safely on glaciers while roped up, and you'll learn technical skills such as crevasse rescue and rappelling. In addition to the lectures and field trips listed below, there are a couple field trips you'll do with your SIG (Small Instructional Group) out in the mountains on snow and ice. Students and graduates of this course are able to sign up for Basic Glacier climbs just like graduates of the Basic Alpine Climbing Course.
