IFMGA Guide Margaret Wheeler takes you through the steps of one of the foundation skills for navigating with a map and compass. In simplest terms, it links the information provided by a map to the terrain around you. You can use this skill to locate peaks or terrain features, to confirm your own location as part of resection, or to navigate in whiteout conditions. For more about navigating with a map and compass, check out the book Backcountry Skiing: Skills for Ski Touring and Ski Mountaineering, by co-authored by Margaret, Martin Volken, and Scott Schell.
