If the weather is adverse we will still run the day based at the Glencoe cafe at base station. We will cover the following theory and run around outside for a bit with our beacons, all of which is extremely valuable learning for budding freeriders:
- Transceiver training
- Snow and Avalanche awareness
- Navigation and route planning
- Freeride competition- what's it all about and tactics
Hope to see you there!
