Glacier Skills Refresher
The Glacier Skills Refresher is a popular outing for those
club members that have completed the Basic Glacier Climbing Course or
equivalent. This is a fun day in the mountains practicing important
snow and glacier climbing skills.
The outing consists of practice for the following skills:
self-belay, team arrest, initial response to crevasse fall, and
direct-pull crevasse rescue. The outing also provides an opportunity to
get to know fellow club members while preparing for the coming climbing
Note that this is not a basic climbing course, but rather a practice
outing for those that have learned these skills already. You must have
completed the Bushwhacker Basic Glacier Climbing Course or equivalent.
There is no cost but these outings are for members only. Priority for GSR is given to existing members.
Status of the Course
GSR's are offered periodically.
