High Angle Alpine Rescue for the Mountain Rescuer

This advanced level 2-day “hands on” workshop is structured for experienced mountain rescuers committed to reinforcing their technical rope rescue skills in the alpine terrain setting. Our primary emphasis in this “team oriented” overview will be exploring select rigging options and techniques (including patient securing/packaging considerations in a litter, anchoring in rock and snow, and station transitions) for a multi-pitch long lowering operation on steep alpine snow. Much of our time will be spent in realistic, practical, and challenging terrain settings in around the Silverton area. This course will focus on steep snow and alpine conditions. This is an unique opportunity. Sign up early as this workshop will fill up quickly
