Winter Mountaineering Clinic

The last 3 years I have taught a winter mountaineering clinic for the Cal Hiking and Outdoor Society (CHAOS). This clinic includes a thorough set of handouts, 6 discussions on the material, 1 local outdoor session for crevasse self-rescue, and 2 trips that are used as field sessions for practicing winter camping and climbing techniques for two different skill levels. If conditions are safe and participants have learned enough, they get to use what they learned to summit a peak during the field session.
