Our local Mountain Rescue Team in Bend OR completed our winter re-certification in technical snow/ice rescue in March of 2015. Teams are tested and required to re-certify in Technical Rock/Search and Technical Snow/Ice. You are judged by other Mountain Rescue teams in the state and are put under a microscope (Everyone in an orange vest is evaluating). A ridiculous amount of time goes into training constantly to keep up the skills necessary to perform rescues in all the different environments our area has to offer. The team absolutely nailed it and performed outstandingly! We are proud to be a part of this team!
