Snow Shelter Clinic
Come join us for a fun and enlightening outing. We will forego the tents in favor of building snow shelters.
We will practice the fine art of building a cozy shelter for one or
two. Then for the ultimate test, we get to spend the night in a shelter
of our own creating - now how often do you get a chance like this?
We’ll be demonstrating and assisting with the
construction of the T-type snow cave (better for steeper
slopes) and the A-frame trench shelter (best on flatter ground).
No prior experience is required.
This is an important skill to know if you are venturing into the back
country in the winter, and the venerable Brad Washburn considered it a
crucial skill for Alaska Range mountaineering.
