Mountaineers Program Center basement, 6-8:30pm

For Snow 2, students are required to attend at least one crevasse rescue skills night and the crevasse rescue workshop. 

Homework for Glacier Skills nights:

It is important that students participating in snow field trips get lots of chances to practice with the individual components of glacier climbing. These skills workshops are designed to give everyone the opportunity to get familiar with these basic elements throughout the year before going on glacier climbing. 

Attendance at these (enough of them to be judged competent by leaders) is required for the snow skills field trip and glacier climbs. A minimum of 2. Mileage may vary between members, therefore attendance at 2 glacier skills workshops does not guarantee admittance to snow field trips or glacier climbs. To go on those trips, one has to have a solid understanding of the different parts and ready to put them all together in a challenging environment. You will be evaluated based on those criteria, not specifically the number of workshops you attended.
