Mountain Rescue

Search and Rescue above treeline requires its own set of skills. CRSAR’s Mountain Rescue Team meets the need with a team of specialists trained in rock climbing, glacier travel and rescue, route finding and alpine anchor and travel systems. These members must be working towards their certification in Rope Rescue and Organized Avalanche Rescue. Training takes place in the summer under the direction of a certified guide from the ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides), and is supplemented by year-round in-house refresher sessions.
