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 and effectively carry out a companion rescue. It is also a great chance to brush up on your skills. Don't yet have a beacon of your own? Not to worry! We'll have several different types (BCA, Ortovox, Pieps, Mammut/Barryvox) for you to try out. Dress to be outside on the snow. These clinics take place at the Bunny Flat trailhead.

Feel free to bring your backcountry ski or snowboard gear and go for a tour after the class! Don't want to listen to us yak away? You can still come and run through the beacon courses a few times to hone your rescue skills. Remember, YOU are the rescue party! Get dialed.

We'll meet at the Bunny Flat parking lot/trailhead about 9 am. Look for the Mount Shasta Avalanche Center flags!
