Don’t miss the 2014 Baker Beacon Rally, a great opportunity to practice avalanche companion rescue skills with you beacon, probe and shovel.
“Mt Baker Education Center, REI and a sluff-load of avalanche educators invite you to a free Backcountry Education Day at Mt Baker. Learn and practice basic search technique with your beacon, shovel and probe. Beginners and Seasoned Veterans are welcome. Beacon practice stations, companion rescue demonstrations and a two lane beacon search race course with over $6,000 in SWAG means you should be there if spending time out of bounds. Attendees should have their own Beacon, Probe and Shovel.” – REI Bellingham
