BMS Colorado Alpine Snow Mountaineering



**Pre-Requisites: Wilderness Fundamentals**  The "Wild Fun" class covers concepts that will be expected knowledge for this course and will reference the text provided from this class!  



**Recommended: Avalanche Level 1** Subsequent trips may require this course



 



Alpine Snow Mountaineering course is two class lectures. Our discussions include evaluating weather and snow conditions, terrain and avalanche risk assessment, gear, trip planning, using crampons and proper climbing techniques, snow travel including proper use of ice axe, self-arrest, glissading, determining slope angles, and route finding. We will discuss and mock demonstrate snow anchors and rope techniques if time allows.





Class Dates:

Tuesday, March 13 6:30PM - 9:00PM 

Thursday, March 15 6:30PM - 9:00PM



Future Practice Days:

Future club trips will be organized for class graduates to practice and review what they have learned.  This is continued good practice for safely travelling in the mountains.  Note that Avalanche 1 may be a prerequisite for those trips.



There will be optional follow-up CMC Trips.  Skills learned in this class are typically requisite for participation.



Refunds are issued for cancellations made up to two weeks prior to the start of the program. There is a $10.00 cancellation fee. NO REFUNDS IN LAST TWO WEEKS OR FOR NO SHOWS

A more detailed list will be sent out to you after registration.
