Ski Mountaineering Crevasse Rescue Practice

Crevasse Rescue Self Extraction Practice sessions for folks on one of Michael's upcoming skimo trips. We'll run through some reps of prusiking out of a crevasse when skiing glaciated terrain.
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers event.

We'll be practicing for this situation (photo of yours truly in the hole).  Please bring your skiing kit including skis/boots/poles, glacier kits including harness and rescue gear, and  a pack.

We'll be focused on the self extraction aspect of a crevasse rescue and everyone will have a chance to practice prusiking with their ski gear on which has some important nuances compared with climbing that you will want to be prepared for in advance of the trip.
