Learning how to be safe in the backcountry is a major reason many members join the CMC. The Introduction to Hiking Safety seminar is a one-evening session during which you will learn:




  •  the many aspects of safety you need to be aware of, including subjects such as lightning, avalanche, animal encounters, getting lost (or staying found) and being stranded over night,

  • tools, methods of preparation, and how to respond to safety challenges,

  • an introduction to the extensive program of in-depth, hands-on safety training offered in the CMC Denver Group’s adult education curriculum.



Subjects will include:




  • trip planning

  • the 10 essentials: must have gear

  • basic navigation: staying found

  • clothing: including layering, materials, rain gear, sun protection

  • animal encounters: bear, moose, mountain lions, rabies, mosquitoes, tics

  • trail nutrition and hydration

  • trail sense: registers, noting location, reading trail markers

  • obtaining Search And Rescue support

  • mountain weather, including lightning safety

  • avalanche terrain avoidance

  • overview of Denver Group schools with significant safety content



Price: $ 5.00 for members, $10.00 for non-members



Schedule:       The next session will be held on March 28th from 6:30 – 9:00
