Save a Friend Beacon Training

20130208-144758.jpg

Come join us every Saturday at 11 am and 1 pm at the Easy Searcher Beacon Practice Area. The ski patrol is offering “Save a Friend” beacon training as a way to encourage the skiing and riding public to know how to use their equipment.

Avalanche transceivers are used to search for buried victims. We recommend that skiers and riders wear a transceiver and know how to use it while traveling in avalanche prone terrain.

The training consists of a transceiver (aka beacon) practice session with a ski patroller as well as shoveling and probing techniques. Other topics covered include deep snow immersion, companion rescue and safe travel practices. The sessions are located at the Campbell Basin Lodge Easy Searcher. Come join us to hone your avalanche beacon skills. Bring your own beacon and probe or borrow one of ours. No experience necessary.

You never know. You might just have to save a friend someday.
