Lead a Journey in Technical Terrain

Lead a Journey in Technical Terrain is for field staff/guides who are in charge of leading single and multi-day journeys on foot, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, dog sledding or skidooing in terrain that may include; snow free glaciers, outwash plains, beach and sub tidal zones, mountains and passes or on sea-ice. Knowledge of polar camping, weather forecasting, utilizing alpine equipment for safety and simple rope assistance and confidence techniques, and making route choices in potentially hazardous terrain are essential. Journeys may involve snow or ice travel with snow shoes or crampons and ice axes. This PQ does not include roped glacier/crevasse travel and is a minimum requirement for longer or multi-day journeys in unknown terrain or untraveled routes.
