Companion Rescue/Beacon Clinic
03/08/2014 - 9:00am
Avalanche transceivers, or beacons, are the best tools we have to find someone buried in an avalanche. Join us and learn how to use one. Demos of several different types (BCA, Ortovox, Pieps, Mammut/Barryvox) will be available. Dress to be outside on the snow. All of these meet at The Fifth Season at 9 am, 300 N. Mt. Shasta Blvd, Mt. Shasta City, then travel to a training site.
Transceiver clinics will be held on Saturdays, December 7, January 4, February 8 and March 8 2014.
Avalanche Awareness and Companion Rescue for SNOWMOBILERS
03/15/2014 - 9:00am
The Mt Shasta Avalanche Center is proud to announce avalanche awareness and companion rescue classes specifically for SNOWMOBILERS! Snowmobile avalanche fatalities have been on the rise in the recent years. We are making the effort to reach out to sledders and the MSAC firmly believes that snowmobiling is not a crime!
Come spend the day with MSAC professionals as we provide you with avalanche and rescue information specifically catered toward the snowmobilers mind. The day will start at 9am at the US Forest Service (204 West Alma Street) conference room. We'll provide a multimedia presentation with industry leading information that will get your juices flowing. Following, all riders will meet up in the Old Ski Bowl on the south side of Mt Shasta and spend the rest of the day practicing beacon, shovel and probe skills, terrain identification and management, and scenarios. Last year we had 30 riders join the class and had a great day of learning. This course is not to be missed!
We will host four of these days this season: December 28th, 2013, January 18th, 2014, February 15th, March 15th. Don't miss out! For more information, call 530-926-4511 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
