Our mountaineering skills clinic focuses on snow travel, including use of ice axe and crampons, self-arrest, snow anchors, and roped snow climbing. We also cover basic snowpack evaluation and avalanche avoidance for effective route planning. Participants will leave with the knowledge necessary for basic mountaineering objectives in the Wasatch and beyond.
Participants should be fit and comfortable hiking with snowshoes. Group hardware and ropes are provided; personal equipment (ice axe, boots, crampons) is available for rent through local partners.
Location: Ogden Ranger District of the Wasatch
Instructors: Derek DeBruin, Billyjack Cundiff
