Uwe Sartori will come from the CMC Denver Group to lead this one day class. We will hold the 2 hour inside portion in Aspen near the Marolt Mining Museum at Debbie and Phil Overeynder's home and then be in the field for the remainder of the day. Leading a CMC trip is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have with the club. Through you, members have the opportunity to realize their hiking and climbing goals. This one day program prepares you for this most important CMC volunteer position. Combining preparatory reading, class leactures and a field session to practice leadership concepts has proven to be popular and productive for the students. Additionally, we will host an on-line training session for using the new CMC Trip Scheduling System (TSS). You can participate from the comfort of home. You will need a computer and internet access.

Nothing is more important than bringing a group home from a hiking or climbing trip without accident or incident. It's not that the risks in the mountains are so high, but that the consequences are too severe to risk untrained, unprepared or unknown trip leaders. Current leaders are welcome,. This may be a good refresher for you.
