Re: CMG: Snowcamping free clinics and annual training series
- Hello all! Apologies for cluttering your mailboxes, but we have had a date change at the Sports Basement Bryant Store and that Snowcamping Essentials clinic will now be on 11/23. Wanted to make sure no one shows up on the wrong date if they were planning to go. Same time, same place.On Sun, Oct 31, 2010 at 4:00 PM, emilie cortes <mountaineerchica@...> wrote:
This is my annual public service announcement about the importance of snowcamping as survival skills whether you are a climber, backpacker, skiier/snowboarder. Additionally, snowcamping can actually be fun. The annual Sierra Club Snowcamping training series really helped me get a jump start in mountaineering - learning how to stay warm, comfortable, and deal w/the winter elements helped me be able to focus more on my climbing (rather than whether my water bottle froze overnight).
We hold a series of free informational clinics around the Bay Area on "Snowcamping Essentials" to give people an idea of the basics and also introduce the annual training series. (Note - the REI presentations are REI staff with Sierra Club snowcampers on hand.) The annual training series includes a one day class and two field trips, all for around $125. I'm a leader in Group 5 in case you want to sign up for my group. Lots more info, applications, etc. at www.snowcamping.org or shoot me an email.
