All Big Country tours begin with a safety talk and a rescue practice. We cover mountain hazards, gear use and limitations, transceiver technique, and big picture planning in the event of an emergency.
Prior to your trip with Big Country, we ask you read and review the waivers found in the “Documents” section to the right.
