On Feb 2 we were at the ULLR FESTIVAL AT BOGUS BASIN.
So what is an ULLR festival? ULLR is a Norse traditional god associated with archery, skiing and snow. Well, this year there was snow on the ground and ski slopes but what fell from the sky on this day (and pretty much all day), was rain. That didn’t stop the skiers from coming to the resort and participating in the festival. There were many people dressed in Norse or “Viking” type clothing and head-wear. Our booth was one of 14 vendors, games and associations that were represented just outside of the main lodge.
IMSARU members had numerous opportunities to answer questions about our organization and educate the public on what we do. The K9 members of course were a huge attraction to both children and adults. ... See MoreSee Less
On Tuesday we were contacted by a Papa John's Pizza and asked if we would like some pizza. Well, who is going to say no to pizza? They delivered a large stack of different types of pizzas to our command center, to the joy of our searchers. Sorry this thank you took a while the information has been slowly circling IMSARU. ...

It's wonderful how the community has been gathering to help with the search.
Thanks to the searchers, and also to their supporters!
2nd long day of searching, night has fallen and it has started snowing on the mountain. Our teams are still out in the field making their way back to the command center.

Every month we train on a different subject, this month was avalanche training. A large part of safety in the wilderness is prevention. We covered getting snow reports and how to read snow and terrain conditions with a large focus on how to prevent triggering an avalanche. We then had a day of field training. We went over how to use an avalanche beacon, probes, and shovel. We practiced companion rescue, patient packaging, as well as responding to large events. We went over types of snow and how to perform a Propagation Saw Test (PST). This was also a great opportunity for our members to test their snow gear. It was a beautiful day in the mountains with a record turnout from our members. ... See MoreSee Less
