Glacier travel is a reality of ski touring in South Western British Columbia and can be one of the most dangerous and limiting parts of a skier or snowboarder’s day. Whether  you are looking to develop safe travel skills for glaciated ski traverses or to reach new lines accessed via glaciated terrain, this is an essential course designed for experienced backcountry skiers and boarders.

The two day program provides the foundations of roped glacier travel and crevasse rescue. If you intend to spend any amount of time traveling in glaciated terrain this intensive and comprehensive course will be an invaluable tool in your belt.

Rigging for glacier travel, travel techniques both up and downhill, snow anchor construction, Initial Load transfers, and self-rescue are the focus of day one. Raising systems (modern and improvised) with up to 6:1 mechanical advantage is the focus of the final day.

In addition to the standard AST gear list please review the equipment list below and ensure that you come ready with everything you need. Extremely Canadian will supply ropes and specific crevasse rescue mechanical devices.
