Mountain Safety This one-day course hosted on Seymour Mountain just outside Vancouver, BC will help you stay safe while snowshoeing or hiking in the mountains. You will spend the day learning about snowshoes, and when to take them off when it becomes steep and icy. You’ll learn that light weight crampons, trekking poles and ice axes are essential mountain equipment when traveling anywhere on local hills in the winter. We’ll cover all the essentials you should carry. Fitness plays a great role in the mountains, and learning how to go about training will make a big difference. We’ll have tea at lunch and spark imaginations with stories. At the end of the day you’ll know how to adjust trekking poles, fit crampons to boots, and  how to use them effectively. Return home knowing that winter is one of the best times to travel in the Coast Mountains. 

Who should take this course? If you’ve been on snowshoes and wondered why some people are using crampons then this course will teach you why. If you don’t carry poles or are unsure of how to get the most from them this course is for you. If you are new to the outdoors and have little experience or want to do more than just follow the crowds up Grouse Mountain or Seymour Mountain spend a day learning how. 

Equipment required? Day-pack, snowshoes, poles, crampons, ice axe. If you don’t already own gear don’t worry we may be able to outfit you at no cost depending on availability.
