SNOW AND ICE TRAVEL TRAINING - 2018

  

NOVEMBER 3, 2018

CUSHMAN WATT SERVICE CENTER

Enjoy the challenge of high-mountain travel with confidence in your safety and knowledge of snow and ice travel techniques. Sharpening your judgment and learning the skills needed for safe and effective practices for snow slope travel will allow you to expand the places that your Unit can visit in the winter outdoors.
 
This High Adventure training is an optional follow-on to Winter Camping and Travel. It begins with a seminar immediately following the Winter Camping and Travel seminar on Saturday, November 3, 2018, at the Cushman-Watt Service Center, 2333 Scout Way, Los Angeles. The special equipment for snow and ice travel will be displayed and the requirements for, and location of, the field training will be discussed. A syllabus that covers the materials discussed will be given to each participant.
 
Field training will be held on a Saturday in January 2019, in the Mt. Baldy area (an Adventure Pass is required for your vehicle). You will be taught how to properly use crampons and an ice axe. You will practice using the ice axe to make a self-arrest and for exhilarating glissades. A forecast of insufficient snow or of extreme weather conditions will cause the field training to be rescheduled. Some special equipment (rent/borrow/buy) will be needed.
 
A fee of $5.00 is charged for the training. Registration is required by October 19, 2018 and it may be submitted along with Winter Camping and Travel. You will be sent a confirmation, or notice of cancellation if there are fewer than 5 sign-ups by that date. Completion of this training is recognized by the award of a special patch.
 
Attendance at Adult Leaders Backpack Training and at Winter Camping and Travel (which may be taken the same day) are prerequisites to taking this course.
 
Hike Aid 3, “Full Dimension High Adventure Training”, has a complete discussion of the training programs of the GLAAC-HAT. It may be downloaded from the Council High Adventure website at http://glaachat. org/HikeAids.html.
