Private Session: Backcountry Navigation With A Map and Compass
Tuesday, December 1, 2020
$300 for REI Members
$380 for non-members
Book a private session and you'll get this entire experience all to yourself--and up to three additional friends or family members. You'll enjoy more one-on-one time with the guide/instructor, more flexibility throughout the session, and a more personal experience for everyone who joins you. Price covers all costs for up to 4 people. During this class, our instructors will help you understand the information provided on your map, the proper use of your compass, and how to put the two together. You'll learn about magnetic north, true north, and magnetic variation (declination). After covering these fundamentals, you'll get time to practice taking a bearing from the terrain and your map so that you can make sense of your position and plan a route. This engaging course is a great introduction to outdoor navigation and map reading!
PLEASE NOTE: Only one person will register for this course, but this private session allows a total group size of 4 people. Invite family members or friends to join you! A Local Experiences team member will contact you ahead of the course to learn more about your group size. If you have any questions please contact us M-F between 9am-4pm at 1 (877) 819-3807 or SanFranciso-OS@rei.com"
Plan on at least 20 minutes to drive this windy mountain road from Highway 280 and look out for cyclists!
