Crevasse Rescue and Glacier Travel:
If you are planning on travelling on the glaciers, summer or winter, then you need to know how to rope-up and perform crevasse rescue. Unfortunately people die in crevasses every year either because they don't know when to have the rope on or because their group is not proficient in crevasse rescue techniques.

I teach crevasse rescue courses year round. The course can be tailored to your needs:

  • 1-day "dry-land" for folks wanting an introduction or to refresh their skills.
  • 2-days "on the ice" for those who want a more in-depth course or to combine it with a guided ascent of Mt Athabasca or another peak on the Columbia Icefields.

Rope Rescue:

If you multipitch rock or ice climbing then you might want to consider learning how to rescue your partner if something goes wrong. This 1-day course teaches you everything you need to know about getting you and your partner out of trouble - escaping the belay, raising, lowering, tandem rapelling.
