Skiing and Glacier Safety Course
January 31, 2022 - February 1, 2022
Glacial terrain is much like avalanche terrain in that it’s all fine until it isn’t. And then it can really get quite bad. So, like avalanche risk management, we will examine 2 strands: what to do to minimise the risk of bad things happening in the first place by avoiding slots, bare ice, moraines and so on. This will involve route planning, observation in the field and tactical navigation. Then, if it all gets out of hand and someone goes in a hole, we will look at rescue, whether by climbing out or pulling someone out if the easier solutions aren’t feasible.
While we’re skiing around on the glacier, we’ll also look at being in control at whatever level is appropriate for the group.
