Seeking your feedback or interest in a training opportunity with Manuel Genswein.

The opportunity has mainly come about, because Manuel is coming to NZ as a key note speaker for the 2019 MSC Alpine Conference in Christchurch 17-19 June.

We can tap into Manuel's energy, knowledge and experience as an extremely knowledgeable international avalanche educator. Here is a bit of Manuel's background https://www.outsideonline.com/2040331/avalanche-rescue-needs-revolutionary

I spoke with Manuel this morning, he is keen to engage and interact with the NZ LandSAR alpine community. So we were thinking potentially offering two weekend workshops, one in the South and one in the North Island. Maybe Wanaka in the South Island 8/9 June and Mt Ruapehu in the North Island 22 / 23 June. We could go into early July, more snow but probably members tied up in winter work. Sunday the 16th of June there are plans by the conference organisers to do a train the trainer event with Manuel pre the MSC conference that some people may also attend if they are going to the conference.

So at this stage I am looking for interest and support before looking at the details to make workshops happen.There is obviously a cost associated with organising workshops for LandSAR members with Manuel. If it is not a flyer we don't need to worry. Feel free to do a reply all. Any questions give me a call.
