For 2013 Backpacking students only - Group 5

Participants will learn and practice snow travel, Sel-belay and self-arrest skills. Ice axes and helmets will be provided for those that need them.

Those interested will also camp for the night in the trees South of St. Mary's Lake. Those camping overnight will set up camp on Saturday and practice snow travel, etc. on Sunday.

The overnight stay is optional but everyone is encouraged to participate in this part of the trip.

Snow shoes or hiking crampons are recommended as are gaiter. Participants should dress appropriately. Participants are advised to wear older less expensive shells for the self arrest practice as the shells may be torn in the practice.
