Companion rescue is a last resort, but an essential skill to master, and stay current on as a backcountry partner. This 8-hour, field-based course focuses on the fundamentals of efficient rescue. Instructors will demonstrate, then students will practice all aspects of organizing and leading rescues, including transceiver searches; methodical probing; strategic shoveling; and airbag deployment and re-packing.
This course is a prerequisite to Pro Level 1 and Rec Level 2 and it also pairs well with the Level 1 Refresher Course. Students may travel on skis or split board with skins, or on snowshoes.
