Sierra Club Snowcamping
Leadership Pages Logon
What could be more fun than going on a snowcamping trip? Introducing others to the joy of winter camping by helping to lead a snowcamping trip!
The leadership pages are available to existing snowcamping leaders and assistant leaders, and include contact information, an expanded calendar including:
- leadership events,
- trailhead information, and
- an archive of leadership and training materials.
For existing leaders seeking to update their contact information, please enter your updated information here.Becoming a Leader
We are always looking for qualified assistant leaders to help with the Snowcamping Training Series! Assistant leaders are often training series alumni who became interested in sharing their knowledge and helping out. A first step in becoming an assistant leader is talking with your training series group leaders.
Note that assistant leaders need to be Sierra Club members in good standing, and typically should have a minimum of experience that includes:
- Successful completion of the Sierra Club Snowcamping Training Series course
- Current (within the past three years) 20 hr. Wilderness First Aid certification. Note that the snowcamping group typically offers such training annually prior to the Snowcamping Training Series (e.g., in December)
- An adequate level of fitness, competency with snow-shoes, and active snowcamping within the last 5 years
- Competent winter route-finding skills (e.g., using map and compass navigation skills in winter conditions)
- Basic snow structure skills
- Sierra Club Outdoor Leadership Training (OLT) certification within the past 4 years (more information here - note the login information in the top left of the target page). Note also that the snowcamping group typically offers such training annually.
- Enthusiasm and ability to teach others new skills!
