Mountain Travel & Rescue Challenge

The Mountain Travel and Rescue (MTR) Challenge is a great way to test your MTR knowledge and skills. The event consists of 10 miles, 2000 vertical feet, and 10 survival stations.

Only 10 - 2 person teams are allowed so sign up quick. We request that at least 1 person of each team complete the MTR Level 1 and both team members must be proficient at all MTR skills (winter backcountry travel, carring all support gear/food/water, etc).

This is a great why to sharpen you skills, make new connections in the division, and challenge yourself. If you are an MTR instrcutor or interested in becoming one, come out and meet your peers.

Participants: Please register for NSP course E106180001

We are looking for volunteers to help with stations!
