Time to swing some ice!

This is the final module in the 2017-2018 BMS series. Completion of this course allows certification in the BMS Alpine Mountaineering track. Congratulations!

This course has a prerequisite of the BMS Rock Climbing module or similar proven skills. Classroom dates are 30 Jan and 1 Feb. The field session is 4 Feb. There will be an optional trip to Ouray on 9-11 Feb. All field sessions are scheduled as CMC trips. The cost for this class is $70. The optional overnight trip will include additional hotel and travel expenses. To receive permission and the passcode, please contact Kristen Buckland at

Regarding gear: Aside from the normal climbing gear (helmet, harness, belay device, biners, slings, and rigid-soled boots), you do not need additional equipment for this class. Your boots must be full shank or 3/4 shank mountaineering boots, Contact Kristen Buckland with any questions or concerns.

Crampons and ice tools are available for your use. You are of course welcome to purchase these items before the class, but they can be quite expensive (especially the ice tools). It is recommended that you try the tools that the club and instructors bring to the field sessions to see what works best for you before making that kind of investment.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
