Winter Skills Weekend is up! Harvard Cabin on Mount Washinton! Click for info!

What: We will be practicing winter snow and mountain skills very different from those covered on Intro Ice Trips. Here is a brief overview of the program:
– Mt. Washington Via Lion Head + maybe some gully parties
– Crampons and ice axe use + self arrest practice
– snow anchors (pickets, flukes, bollards, deadmen)
– winter camping (perhaps less of a teach, more of a do)
– Basic Intro to Avalanche Information
– Glacier travel and crevasse rescue

When: February 13-16, President’s  Day long weekend. Come for as many days as you’d like!

Where: Harvard Cabin on Mount Washington

How to attend: Come to our meeting this Thursday, February 12th! If absolutely cannot make the meeting, please email rradovanovic@college.harvard.edu
