Course Information & Requirements

WOOHOO! We're so excited you're here. Thank you for your interest in the OSAT Glacier Climbing Course. For the most updated course information please review our web-page

When you sign up, please keep a few things in mind:

  • Event Attendance: Attendance at events is 100% mandatory. Please you clear your calendar with employers, teachers and family in advance of signing up to make sure you can make it to everything. Pssst, 2023 dates are at the bottom of this page. :)
  • Required Monthly Conditioner: Every student is required to complete one scheduled conditioning hike per month. These conditioners are generally a half-day or longer,  6 to 10 miles, and 2,500 to 4,000 feet elevation gain. Get ready to sweat! And have some great Type 2 fun.
  • Gmail Email Address: Every student is required to have a Gmail email address by the time the course begins. We'll be using Google Classroom this year (ooh, so fancy), and we don't want you to miss out.
  • Course Fee: The course fee of $175 covers the cost of the electronic syllabus,  group gear, classroom space, and Mount Rainier climbing fees. The fee must be paid upon registering. Those who have not paid will be dropped from the course (sorry!). The course fee does NOT include the cost of your individual mountaineering equipment.
  • Course Gear: While many students rent, borrow, or purchased used gear to mitigate costs, the acquisition of proper attire and gear is can add up quickly. We aim to stagger the gear requirements to help break up the upfront costs, but you should begin planning the expenses ahead of time, including your first purchases, which are required to attend the first field trip, on January 7th, 2023. More details regarding gear requirements will be provided after registration.
  • Course Refunds: The course fee is refundable until December 31, 2022 at 11:59 pm. If you sign up for the course and decide to withdraw before that time, a refund will be made to you by check (minus a $25 processing charge).

Waitlist Information

  • After the first 66 students are selected, students will be put on a wait list. Wait-listed members will be notified by email if an opening become available. You will not be charged until you become enrolled in the course.
  • If you are wait-listed, keep an eye on your email (please)! You will have 24 hours to respond and sign up once you're contacted about a spot opening.
