Beacon training! It is that time of year when the snow has blanketed the mountains and the musical sound of avalanches rumbling in the distance tells you you better know how to use your beacon.

This will help you become familiar with the use of avalanche beacons so you will have even more fun on the AST1 course you are about to take.

Participants must bring their own beacon. You can sign these out during gear hours. Also bring a head lamp, warm clothes and BEvERages for the organizer.

Meet at the club room 17:00
