Avalanche Rescue and Snow Safety

Rocky SAR responds to avalanche accidents within Clearwater County. The members of the Mountain Rescue Team regularly train in snow safety, avalanche companion rescue skill and avalanche scenarios. All Rocky SAR team members are encouraged to complete basic avalanche rescue and snow safety skills and Mountain Rescue Team Members are expected to complete AST II training as soon as possible and pursue professional avalanche training. We are backed up on avalanche incident response by the professional rescuers from Kananaskis Mountain Rescue/ Alberta Parks.
