It is time to sign up for the Basic Mountaineering Course. Please notify Brent Meelker at Volunteer Forces of your intent to participate. The lecture session will be held at aviation. The field session is snow dependent. Location is yet to be determined. It is possible it will be out of county.

Prerequisites for the full course require certification as a Rope Rescue Operator (RRO). Any SAR member in good standing may attend the lecture session only. This results in a certificate for “Winter Alpine Awareness.”

The dates for BMC are:
Lecture session November 10, 11

Field session January 19, 20
February 16, 17 (if January is canceled)
March 9, 10 (if February is canceled)
