Tailgate Alaska In Short Episode 32: Ten Minute Class – Glacier Travel

In the latest episode of Tailgate Alaska In Short, we take a ten minute class from instructors Ed Shanley and Sarah Carter on how to navigate glaciers safely.

Snowboarding in glaciated terrain can be pretty sketchy. Crevasses can be covered up by snow bridges and the danger can be easily concealed from view.

In the latest Tailgate Alaska, we take a ten minute class from instructors Ed Shanley and Sarah Carter, who give us some tips on the best way to navigate glaciers, terrain to watch out for, the best equipment to carry with you and the easiest way to rescue a buddy who might have slipped into a crevasse.

Hit play and take notes!
