           *Avalanche dog rescue drill demo
           *Avalanche beakon search practice
           *Avalanche probe pole line demo
           *Shooting of the Avi lancher Gun (conditions permiting)
           *camping at 10800′ in the middle of January (sleeping with the mtn. goats)
           *lots of hot chocolate
           *sledding and lots of other fun.
When:   Jannuary 15 & 16th – skiing and camp out! (9:30 on sat to 3:30 on sun at A-basin)   
                 Those needing a ride and drivers (which we still need more of), meet at PEPC by 5:30am!
                  This is a scouting event – WEAR CLASS A uniform for the trip.
