Snow Travel for Backpackers

Sunday, April 13 11am -5pmish

Do enough backpacking and eventually you'll find yourself needing to cross a snowfield.  Wouldn't it be nice to know how to do so safely?

We'll cover topics like: ascending/descending steep slopes, appropriate equipment, using an ice axe to arrest your fall.

If you have an ice axe and/or crampons, bring them.

If you don't have these, come anyway.  We'll have a selection to share.

Instructor: Andy Politz, an international mountain guide

Cost:  COP Members - $20, Non-members - $30


Registration deadline is 11:59pm Wednesday, April 9th (so we can supply Snow Trails with a roster)  

Coordinator: Ann Gerckens  614/282-2781.
