Avalanche Beacon Practice & Drills

Have you practiced using your Beacon this year? Do you feel confident you can rescue your friend if buried? Are you wanting to learn how your beacon works?

Join me as we learn how to find a buried beacon quickly and efficiently. Spend a much needed half day practicing using our beacons. The Friends of the NW Avalanche Center is nice enough to give us their beacons to use during our practice sessions. Now let’s take time to practice course searching, pin-point searches, and multi-burials.


Bring a backpack that you can bury. Avalanche probes will be very helpful to locate the buried beacons. I am short probes.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
