Interagency Avalanche Response Training

As a member of the Alaska Mountain Rescue Group I participated in an Interagency Avalanche Training event in Hatcher Pass this weekend.  The training was two full days the first of which was spent refreshing skills and the second was spent responding to mock scenarios.  A lot of work went into putting on a this event and I am glad I was able to participate.  There were about 75 people involved each day with representation from AMRG, Nordic Ski Patrol, MATSAR, Alaska State Parks, and others.  Here is a link to a video from the training.
