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.
