Ice Axe Skills Workshop

7 am - 7 pm

$34, ages 14 and up (minors must have a parent/guardian present)

In preparation for our spring and summer summit trips, two classes are required: Avalanche Awareness Class and Ice Axe Skills. Ice Axe skills are used in a mountaineering environment to allow you to travel safely to your destination. Should you slip or fall, you will learn how to arrest (stop) yourself and come to a safe and efficient stop without the aid of ropes or other devices.

Register two days prior. 

Avalanche Awareness & Ice Axe Skills are required for our annual Mount Saint Helens Climb Saturday, May 5 - Sunday, May 6. For information on Mount Saint Helens Climb visit myFFR #4018125. Registration deadline for this climb is March 1.

* Attention Everett Patrons: Transportation to this class will be available out of Smokey Point.
