Avalanche Beacon Practice & Drills (beacon provided)

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 few hours practicing using your beacons. The Friends of the NW Avalanche Center is nice enough to give us their beacons to use during our practice sessions as well as KAF Adventures. 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.


Looking forward to meeting and working with you all.

    Great equipment. Never used or held a beacon before. Very impressive technology. Thank you NW Avalanche Service for the loan of the equipment.

    I will be about 20 min late, but can't find anyone's #. Mine is[masked] 2196. Let me know if you receive this and where you'll be practicing. Never been to Alpental.

    Hi, just wondering if this would be good for a beginner. If so, I would like to come but would need a ride. Ken, [masked]

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
