These practice nights are intended to supplement the full-day crevasse rescue workshops. This is a complex skill that MAC students should practice as frequently as possible. These practice sessions are a great venue for getting that practice in. 

Prerequisites: Attendance at 2 of the glacier skills practice nights and a crevasse rescue workshop. Attendance at a minimum of 2 of these workshops is a prerequisite for the snow 1 and snow 2 field trips.
