Free Beacon Training
Sunday January 06, 2013
Schweitzer Ski Patrol offers free beacon training each Sunday. The training sessions will meet each Sunday at 10am by the clock tower and welcomes all ability levels. While no equipment is necessary to participate, Schweitzer does recommend bringing one’s own gear if possible.
This program will educate skiers and snowboarders on how to use their backcountry equipment properly. Participants will practice searching with beacons, using probes and proper digging techniques. Special topics might include deciphering weather patterns, understanding snowpack and the etiquette of backcountry skiing.
Sign up isn't necessary, just show up at the clock tower at 10am booted up and ready to go.
