  • Price: CAD30.00 /per person

    Refund policy

  • Need a minimum of 5 for this course or it will be rescheduled.

    Knowledge of Map and Compass usage is essential in the backcountry. 1 Wrong turn on a trail, or scouting your own routes rely heavily on these skills.

    This seminar on the basics of reading UTM projection topographical maps and compass navigation will get you started in being able to locate where you are, and help you navigate to where you want to go.

    We'll cover:

    Types of Maps

    Reading Topographical maps

    UTM Grid reference

    Types of Compasses

    Correlating map and compass for navigation and triangulation.

    Q and A

    Maps and Compasses are provided for use for this course, however feel free to bring any compasses you own if you would like.


    I understand 6:30PM is a bit early for some, however we need the full length of this to get everything in and I don't want it to run TOO late.
