Tailgate Alaska In Short Episode 33: Ten Minute Class – Learning The Ropes

Following on from last week’s ten minute class on glacial travel, the latest episode of Tailgate Alaska In Short takes us through the basics of setting up ropes.

This one’s definitely for the more advanced and adventurous of you snowboarders out there, and we’d highly recommend attending a class in person for this one, but if you’re ever plan on traveling across glaciated terrain or being in an alpine situation where ropes are necessary, this ten minute class would be a good option for refreshing your memory.
