Service Description

This three day Course is completely hands on and will set you up with everything you need to know for Crevasse Rescue.  No prior knowledge of roped mechanical advantage systems or Glacier travel is required for participation in this course.  By the end of the course though, we will have everyone understanding the systems enough to pull the instructors out of a Crevasse.   Roped Glacier travel, rappelling/ascending ropes, snow anchor building, zee pulley, and mechanical advantage raising and lowering systems are all covered in this course.  We keep participant numbers to a minimum to allow for proper instructor mentorship and a better learning environment for these systems.  Two days are spent learning the systems in snow and the third day is spent focusing on Glacier Travel techniques on Glaciers.  This course also comes with a complimentary document containing Glacier Theory, key considerations to think about for glacier travel, photos and the step by step process of Crevasse Rescue.
