The Expedition Skills Seminar – Emmons is soaking up the sun and setting up camp in Glacier Basin.  The team is doing really well and everyone is excited to be on the mountain.  There are clouds building so taking advantage of the sun is the number one priority for training this afternoon.

Hello RMI Family! Our Emmons Expedition Skills Seminar started today at our Basecamp in Ashford. The team got to know one another, we did clothing and equipment checks and now we have moved on to the fun stuff!

It’s a beautiful sunny day down here while practicing some vertical moves on the ice wall. We are going to play around this afternoon before we venture onto the mountain to acclimatize and practice some on-mountain skills.
