A GOOD Mountaineering Course???
I'm looking for some info please.
My goal is complete a 5-7 day Basic Mounaineering Course around the May or June time this year and I'm looking at options for instruction at this point.
The course should include things like rope skills, crevasse travel and rescue, self arrest, crampon use, etc. (the normal stuff you would learn on a mountaineering program).
I've looked at Canada West Mountain school obviously, but I'm very willing to travel if need be to get a quaility course from another option, or an instructor or guide that you would recommend.
I've also looked at Alpine Ascents in the Seattle area, and instruction in the Whistler area. As stated I'm willing to travel within BC and Washington. If you do recommend these schools for one reason or another, are there certain Instructors or Guides that you recommend that teach a quality program? Like any school offering any kind of instruction, instructors can vary on thier level of knowledge and thier level of experience. I don't mind waiting out to get onto a course that had that certain instructor or guide. Private message me if you prefer.
Basically if I'm going to spending $1500 bucks or so in the program, I'd like to get the most out of it.
Your recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
