How much do you practice with your beacon?

  1. I thought the post asking what beacon you use was great but it made me wonder how many times per winter everyone practices with there beacon? I do a practice search once a week but that's partly because my job requires me to do so. How many do you do?

  2. I will be the first to admit: "Not enough"

  3. I usually attend the Spokane Mountaineers Beacon Practice event and then help lead the Avalanche Rescue Practice. I plan to post about both of these as we firm up the details. Thanks for the post skibumhiggins. What is your work that requires you to do so? Sounds like a cool job. :)

  4. I ski patrol full time in the winter at Schweitzer and that's where I do my beacon practice. Avalanche rescue with the Spokane mountaineers sounds cool though, definitely post something when you have the details.
