Mt'n. Travel & Rescue course on 02/24/2011 23:48:26 MST Print View

Feb. 26th I'm co-teaching a ski patrol Mountain Travel & Rescue course (indoor session). My topics are map & compass, clothing and shelters.

I think I've got the topics covered but I want to know what you'd advise me to cover that may not be in standard texts. i.e. "hard earned" tips on clothing, shelters, cooking, water carring & storage overninght, etc. (BTW, the National Ski Patrol publishes a book for the course.)
