The BoeAlps Basic Climbing Class (BCC) is a great opportunity to learn the skills that are necessary for basic competence in alpine travel. This course covers at an introductory level everything from proper clothing and route finding to crevasse rescue and glacier travel. If you are new to the outdoors or have outdoor experience but lack the training to go with it, then this course is a must for you!

Class sessions are held on Wednesday evenings, with one-day weekend outings (either Saturday or Sunday) from Mid Feb through June. Note that two full weekend outings are also scheduled during the class (snow camping and graduation climb).
