I want to head up to Seymour and practice a couple companion rescue scenarios. Are you in?! 

This is not a replacement for AST-1. You should have your AST-1. 

To maximize efficiency, I'm keeping this to one car load. I can squeeze 5 people into my car now that I have a roof rack. We'll practice the following:

  1. Single burial
  2. Double burial
  3. Close proximity double burial
  4. Discussion for first responder (you!) care for victim 

Required Items to Bring:

  • Warm Clothing, Touring Skis, Avalanche Transceiver, Shovel, Probe, Food & water
