TNSAR Training

The Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue Team holds several training sessions every month throughout the autumn, winter, and spring. Training exercises vary from the ubiquitous terrain familiarization to first aid, avalanche safety or backcountry navigation. The Team trainings are designed to be fun and informative and all Team members are encouraged to attend. The TNSAR garage is located at 223 Fairway Drive in Tahoe City, next to the Tahoe City Fire Department.

The following important notes are for training participants:

The following important notes are for training leaders:

APRIL 22 (Sun) -- GLACIER TRAVEL AND CREVASSE RESCUE

Been asked by several people to hold this training, so here it is. Bring ice axe, crampons, harness, and any equipment or knowledge you have. We will practice self arrest techniques, crevasse haul systems and snow/rock anchors

APRIL 27 (Fri) -- WILDERNESS FIRST RESPONDER/EMT REFRESHER
3-day refresher (4/27-4/29) course for team members who are already WFRs or EMTs. See forum for details, let Matt know soon if you plan on going.

MAY 12 (Sat) -- WILDERNESS FIRST AID COURSE
This two-day (5/12-5/13) class will give you a Wilderness First Aid certificate valid for 2 years. If you did one of the team's WFA trainings 2 years ago, your certificate is now lapsing and you should come take the class again. See forum for details, let Matt know soon if you plan on going.


Training is an essential part of the Team's activities--new skills are learned, old skills honed, dormant skills rewakened.

Please arrive at the garage ready to depart. Noted times are for departure. Be sure to come to the Team trainings equipped with personal gear--specialized equipment can be borrowed from the Team truck. The Team Garage is located at 223 Fairway Drive, Tahoe City behind the Chevron Station.

The goal of TNSAR is to conduct fast and safe rescues, and to help educate the public on winter safety. If you would like to help TNSAR in this cause, please use the following PayPal donate link. Thanks!
