snow climbing class - May 9, 2009
The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.This class is designed for beginners. We will discuss equipment and technique but the majority of the class will focus on practicing self-arrest with an ice axe. You will need an ice axe, helmet and clothing suitable for frolicking in the snow all morning. Plan to spend a lot of time in the snow. The club has a few ice axes and helmets available if you don't have the equipment. If you have crampons you can bring them but you will need to remove them for the self arrest practice. The class will end around noon. There is a charge of $15 for members and $20 for non members. Recommended reading: Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills.
