We will review to basics of the various avalanche beacons [if you own something other than the BCA - TRACKER - please bring your instruction manual]. We will review all the Basic functions of your beacon including:
1 - how to conduct a beacon check.
2 - how to switch from TRANSMIT to SEARCH and return.
3 - steps to begin a beacon search.
4 - when to go for help.

We will break into teams and practice single and multi-burial searches
**THIS IS A REVIEW - You should already know how to operate your beacon. **FYI - This is not a substitute for a more formal avalanche class.
**Bring your beacon(s) with fresh batteries, a canvas shopping bag, and a protective container for your beacon......

AND - In addition to your beacon - when traveling in the Backcountry you should have a shovel and probe.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
