Do you know some things about glacier travel and feel like passing them along to the next generation of VOCers?

It's time for G1 again, which means we need you!!! 

G1 will look a little different this year. We will be doing a virtual dry school with breakout rooms for instructors to work in smaller groups. We will be visiting 3 glaciers instead of just one. There will be no partying and no communal mulled wine, though I encourage you to make your own if you feel so inclined. 


The three glaciers we will be going to are:

  1. Train Glacier (at Semaphore Lakes)
  2. Cypress Glacier
  3. Wedge

Students will be assigned to glaciers based on their fitness level, with Semaphore being the easiest, Cypress moderate, and the third option more difficult. I plan to send two or three groups to each glacier. Each group will have two instructors and two to four students. 

Groups will camp separately and likely not interact much, though the idea is to have backup in case something goes wrong.
