This post will be updated to reflect information about gear, location, etc.

Snow School this year will be on Sunday, May 11th at Paradise on Mt. Rainier. This will cover proper use of an ice axe, crevasse rescue, and general glacier travel skills. We will be departing from the Burke Museum at 7:00 am and returning in the evening with a probable stop for dinner. Drivers and passengers will be responsible for splitting the cost of gas and the park entrance fee ($15).

If you have no experience in this area, you will need to attend the skills session on May 7th from 5:30-7:30 at the HUB.

On Sunday, there will be teams of four practicing together.

Each rope team will require:
1. 1 rope (60m)
2. 2 pickets w/ slings
3. 1 rescue pulley

Each member of the rope team will require:
1. Harness (added)
2. 1 locking carabiner
3. 2 non-locking carabiners
4. 2 prussiks
5. Helmet
6. Ice axe

The IMA has a lot of ice axes and a few helmets. The HUB office has three pickets, three harnesses, and three pulleys.

Post the following below:
- if you plan to attend Snow School as someone who wants to learn or someone who wants to teach
- if you plan to attend the meeting on the 7th as someone who wants to learn or someone who wants to teach
- rope team equipment which you can contribute
- whether you have a car or need a ride

Teaching
Teaching/Learning

Jim Prager
Obadiah Reid
Eric Meier
Brian Polagye (room for 3)
Oscar Lilienthal (room for 3)
Craig Weiland (room for 3)
Mehul Suthar (room for 3)
Mike Decker (room for ?)
Barbara Karabin
Kyle Armour
Brian Doehle
David Schruth
Matt Luzum (car, how many?)
Evan Jewett
Annelisa Tornberg
Ethan Welty (ankle permitting)
Martin Riedel
Bill Corrigan

----TRIP UPDATE----

Weather forecast for Sunday calls for a chance of snow showers with a higher around 39 degrees and moderate winds. Practicing crevasse rescue tends to be a rather cold activity and involves standing around so I would recommend that everyone:
1. bring warmer layers (top and bottom) than usual
2. bring a thermos with a warm drink (hot chocolate, tea, etc.)

----DRIVER UPDATE----

Since there are showers forecasted, the road up to Rainier may have a little snow on it, but probably not very much. Passenger cars should be fine. However, Rainier sometimes requires that all vehicles (including all wheel drive) carry a set of chains, so all vehicles should have chains (even though I don't expect that we'll need them).

These are mostly just suggestions. However, I'd like all the trip teachers in a single car on the drive up so we can do a little last minute organizational planning. Everyone else is free to split up however they like, but it looks like we'll have enough cars for everyone who wants to go.

Car #1
Brian Polagye
Obadiah Reid
Eric Meier
Jim Prager

Car #2
Oscar Lillenthal
Barabara Karabin
Kyle Armour
Brian Doehle

Car #3
Craig Weiland
David Schurth
Evan Jewett
Analisa Tornberg

Car #4
Mehul Suthar
Matt Luzum
Ethan Welty

Car #5
Mike Decker
Martin Riedel
Bill Corrigan

----GROUP UPDATE----

Check next to your name for equipment you're on the hook for. If you're bringing pickets, make sure these have slings and non-locking 'biners attached. If you have equipment that you'd like to bring anyway for the practice/training weight (like additional pickets or pulleys) that's fine too, but you don't need to.

Group #1
Brian Polagye (pickets)
Barabara Karabin
Kyle Armour (rope)
Ethan Welty (pulleys)

Group #2
Obadiah Reid (rope, picket, pulleys)
Brian Doehle
Martin Riedel
Craig Weiland
David Schurth

Group #3
Jim Prager (picket, pulley)
Evan Jewett (rope, pulley)
Analisa Tornberg
Mehul Suthar
Matt Luzum (picket)

Group #4
Eric Meier (pulleys)
Oscar Lillenthal (pickets)
Mike Decker (rope)

I'm interested in coming on Sunday as someone who mostly wants to teach.

I have a rope, two pickets, and a pulley. I have all the necessary personal gear.

Have a car and can take three others.

I will attend the meeting on the 7th and the snow school on the 11th as someone who wants to learn.

I am in the process of buying the necessary personal gear and I should have it by the 7th.

I have a car and I can take up to 3 more people.

I'm interested in coming as someone who wants to learn but can also help teach a few things... I don't know how to do crevasse rescue (I'd like to learn), but I can help teach some other snow skills like how to build deadman anchors, how to properly place pickets, how to make a bollard, self arrest, etc. Except for a rope, I have all the necessary gear. I can also drive myself and three others.

I will be attending the meeting and would like to go to the outing as well. I would be on the learning side of it and could drive.

I have a little glacier travel experience, a little avalanche rescue knowledge and no glacier rescue knowledge.

I would like to attend the Wednesday and Sunday meetings to learn something.

I have all the personal gear, except for the prussiks (which I would like to make so could someone tell me exactly how much cordelet I need?) I don’t have any of the team gear and need a ride.

I can help out as an instructor at the meeting, but I won't be able to make the trip unfortunately. :(

Brian, I believe the standard length for your prussiks is as follows: When tied, the longer one should reach from about your ankle/foot to your waist and the shorter from from around your nose to your waist.

I'm interested in going and my knowledge bridges between learning and assisting in teaching - I really just need to more practice with what I learned last summer. I'll have to make sure my schedule is clear with the wife - actually I would like to bring her to this so she can learn - she would be a learner. I can make the Wednesday night meeting.

Gear I can supply:
-50m dry rope
-70m dry rope (if we are not going far)
-1x 2' pickett, 1x 3' pickett
-Slings and Biners
-A Petzl UltraLegere pulley (basically a plastic ring that goes on a oval biner and acts as a pulley

I will likely need a ride, if Lisa does not come, but I'm not sure yet.
