BC AdventureSmart Team
Dec 16 – Dec 17 all-day

The British Columbia AdventureSmart Team will be travelling throughout the province delivering valuable public safety information sessions throughout the year.

AdventureSmart will be at Manning Park talking to skiers and riders about Snow & Avalanche Safety, Backcountry Awareness and Personal Preparedness. Our aim is to reduce the number and severity of Search & Rescue incidences by encouraging Trip Planning, Training and Taking Essentials. We will be providing safety whistles, emergency blankets, avalanche information and kid’s goodies. Members of BC Search and Rescue Groups will join us on both days to engage with people about their volunteer role in communities across Vancouver Island.”

Look for the tent by the Daylodge on Saturday and join us downstairs in the Daylodge on Sunday, for a presentation covering the 3 T’s:

  • Trip Planning. Plan your travel route. Know the terrain and conditions. Check the weather and always fill out a trip plan.
  • Training. Obtain the knowledge and skills you need before heading out. Know and stay within your limits.
  • Taking the Essentials. Always carry these essentials, and know how to use them. Add other equipment specific to your chosen activity, season and location.
