Companion Rescue Beacon Clinic (Jan 2024)
Date and Times
Sunday, January 7, 2024 - 9:00am
Bunny Flat meadow areaView Map
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. Think warm footwear and gloves! These clinics take place at the Bunny Flat meadow area. Look for our flags!
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. It's always good to refresh your skills at the beginning of every season. 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!
