The field trip in absence of previously scheduled trips is your opportunity to practice the techniques presented in the lectures and reading material under the guidance of experienced instructors. Your mastery of the skills required for safe, enjoyable winter backcountry travel will be reviewed and discussed with you.

Adequate preparation is necessary in order to get the most benefit out of the field trip:

  • Review lecture material, reading material, and handouts.
  • Practice the techniques beforehand.
  • Bring adequate clothing and equipment for a full, long day in the snow.
  • Arrive early enough to park and make whatever preparations are necessary so you can be ready to begin at the starting time.
  • Don't bring family, friends, or pets.

Note:  It is Mountaineers policy that alcohol and controlled substances may not be used before or during club tours and field trips.
