New MTN 2 Training Options for 2016

Hello SMC Members and Meetup members,

MTN 2: Snow Camping and Winter Mountaineering has historically been one of our most popular and important training courses. There are now three options for getting MTN 2 training. These are the only MTN 2 dates for 2016:

  1. MTN 2 TRAINING ONLINE: This new option qualifies you to attend any MTN 2 free practice events as well as any MTN 2 club events and expeditions. 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm, held on Jan 14th, Feb 18th, or Mar. 10th. Registration is $220. SMC paid members only. No limit on attendees. Training is held entirely online using a business class video conferencing service. Very convenient and time efficient option which puts MTN 2 credentials on your SMC profile and provides priority on any interest list.
  2. MTN 2 FREE PRACTICE: This second new option is held on Castle Peak near Tahoe, includes technical climbing and loaner gear, and is also instructional just like the traditional MTN 2 course. However, instead of payment participants will be RSVPed from the interest list. Those that attend online MTN 2 training will get priority and anyone else who has qualifying experience can attend. Maximum 12. SMC paid or free members only. Jan 23-24, Feb. 27-28,or March 19-20. This is the best venue to learn MTN 2 with a sharp summit, deep snow, and minimal approach.
  3. MTN 2 IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SIERRA MOUNTAIN GUIDES: Held in the Eastern Sierra near Bishop with a certified guide and non-technical. Maximum 12, first-come, first serve. SMC paid members only. $360. Feb. 20-21 and April 2-3. This is great for those who don't live near Tahoe or who don't like the other two options.

Registration and interest lists for all these MTN 2 dates are open now! I hope this will allow more members to get the snow camping and winter mountaineering training they need to have an amazing 2016!

Thank you for your involvement and interest in SMC.
