Map & Compass Training

Knowing where you are in the wilderness is a necessary skill. Many great days have turned into bad nights due to poor navigation skills. This course will teach how to effectively use a topographic map, compass, and the surroundings to determine current location and navigate to your destination. Students will learn about triangulation, geographic features, and shooting bearings.

Advanced Cross-Country Route Finding

When the trail ends, the fun begins. Traveling over rugged terrain without trails or land marks is an advanced skill. Whether finding a water cache, navigating a crevassed glacier in a whiteout or traveling in dense brush, knowing the skills needed before you are faced with these challenges is important. Let a highly-skilled WLI instructor build your proficiency in wilderness travel.
