Crevasse Rescue

Mountain Hazards

Climb a Mountain

This 3 day crevasse rescue course is catered to beginner Alpine Climbers. With 3 days we focus on providing a hands on approach to learning and at a 4:1 ratio max we keep the quality of learning and safety high. You will have a chance to get up into the Alpine, learn about safe glacier travel techniques, learn crevasse rescue techniques, and then apply these skills on a Summit attempt. 2 nights camping in the Alpine gives participants the full experience of Alpine Climbing and lots of time with your guide to ask questions. This is not just a course, it is a three day Alpine adventure.
