Thank you for considering signing up to volunteer in the search effort! Here are some things to consider and bring with you:

  1. Small “day pack” of some kind – fill with a few snacks, water, personal items (chapstick, tissue etc.)
  2. Water – refillable container is recommended. Searching is physical and difficult. It’s important to stay hydrated.
  3. Sunscreen & sunglasses – the sun is bright, intense and amplified even on days that are overcast. You are still at risk for a sunburn even in the winter/spring.
  4. Dress warm – layers are recommended as the temperature can fluctuate throughout the day and the physical effort of the search will having feeling warm and cold multiple times throughout the day.
  5. Warm and water resistant pants
  6. Warm and water resistant gloves/mitts
  7. Warm and water resistant boots with good ankle support
  8. Ziploc or other waterproof container for valuables (phone, wallet etc.)
  9. Snowshoes – bring them if you have them. If not, snow shoes may be available at the command centre in limited supplies.
  10. Back country or avalanche poles – bring them if you have them. A supply is also available on site.
  11. Optimism!! It’s very easy to feel overwhelmed in this situation. Remember the person right beside you may be feeling the same way! Be prepared to make friendships and experience kindness and hope like you have never seen before. We are all coming to support a common goal and purpose which is to bring Ryan home!
