Crevasse Rescue Course

The goal of this one-day or two-day course is to teach rope teams how to per­form one of the most chal­leng­ing sce­nar­ios in moun­taineer­ing: a full crevasse res­cue. To prac­tice those skills, our class­room for the day will be Mount Rainier’s beau­ti­ful Low­er Nisqually Glac­i­er or Mount Bak­er’s Low­er Eas­t­on Glac­i­er. The one-day cours­es take place in spring on Mount Rainier, while the two-day cours­es take place in sum­mer on Mount Bak­er. (Loca­tion may vary)
