snowshoe & beacon/probe/shovel practice

We will snowshoe to the place where there is sufficient snow and then practice avalanche safety gear (avalanche beacon, probe and shovel). During snowshoeing, we will discuss avalanche risks of different terrains and snow packs. Make a day out of it and join the WMC Pray for Snow party at the lodge. Please bring snowshoes, micro-spikes, avalanche safety gear (avalanche beacon, probe and shovel) and 10Es. If you have extra avalanche safety gear or do not have avalanche safety gear, please indicate it when you register. Please email before Friday, 3 pm, November 30, for the meeting place and time. Registration priority will be given to WMC members. Limit 20. Co-organized with Jim Kucera.
