Companion Rescue Beacon Clinic

March 7 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Join the Mt. Shasta Climbing Rangers for the Mt. Shasta Avalanche Center’s monthly free training –

Avalanche transcievers, or beacons, are the best tools we have to find someone buried in an avalanche. Join us and learn how to use one and effectively carry out a companion rescue. It is also a great chance to brush up on your skills. Demos of several different types (BCA, Ortovox, Pieps, Mammut/Barryvox) will be available. Dress to be outside on the snow. These clinics take place at the Bunny Flat trailhead. Bring your backcountry ski or snowboard gear and go for a tour after the class! Don’t want to listen to us yak away? You can still come and run through the beacon courses a few times to hone your rescue skills. Remember, YOU are the rescue party! Get dialed.

Meet at The Fifth Season in Mt Shasta, CA – 9 AM ; Carpool to Bunny Flat for a half day training.
