Photos from the CAA Module 3

The flight in to Quartz Creek on the CAA Mod 3 Course.

Just arrived at Castle Mountain in Southern Alberta where I'll be working a ski course with the Canadian Military for the next ten days. If it sounds glorious, please wipe your eyes and re-read the first sentence. Nothing with the Canadian Military is glorious. After spending a few days dressed in full military fatigues and skiing at the resort, we will venture in to the wild and set-up a back country camp. So far, I'd have to say that the most challenging aspect for me has been trying to teach people that I can't even see.

Otherwise, just finished the final module of the Canadian Avalanche Association Level Two course. It was an excellent week spread amongst The Kicking Horse Slack Country, Rogers Pass and the Purcells. I learned a ton and got many good laughs with the five other members of Group 2. Now I just need to find a way to pay it off.

Record everything! Height, weight, emotional stability, core temp, skull density, etc...
