Steep snow and ice dryland training day

Bush Search and Rescue members with steep snow and ice skills attended a "dryland" training day in Melbourne to learn some theory and practice steep snow and ice skills including using avalanche transceivers (in South Surrey Park), roping techniques, equipment review and stretcher rigging and hauling using a z-pulley system. Participants were also trained on our latest radio technology.

 

This training is preparation for the steep snow and ice stream of this year's winter training weekend at Mount Hotham scheduled on 24 and 25 July 2010.
