Winter school

The NH AMC has two winter schools a year. These are weekends at one of their huts with classes on winter hiking, skiing, winter backpacking, and winter leadership. Well, Tyson and I have agreed to lead trips for the ski committee, so we needed to take the leadership class. We discussed how to deal with accidents and emergency situations. We also did some hiking around outside where the instructors acted as troublesome trip participants. All in all I learned a bunch from the weekend, but I also found it frustrating because they kept throwing the hard situations at us.
