Island author/adventurer to talk about the bridge from ‘event’ to ‘experience’

What happens when we have a “close call” or experience tragedy on a mountain adventure?

What do we do?

A speaker presented by Campbell River Search and Rescue Society (CRSAR) will discuss this topic at Timberline Theatre on Friday from 7-9 p.m.

Ken Wylie is an accredited mountain guide and author of the book Buried. He is going to speak on “The Bridge from Event to Experience.” His topic will be of great interest to anyone who enjoys outdoor adventure – particularly those who ski or who enjoy the back country.

The “Bridge” is a process of accessing learning in order to add value to our adventure and gain self knowledge which improves safety and enriches our lives.

Wylie is an IFMGA mountain guide, educator, author and first ascensionist of both rock and waterfall ice climbs in the Canadian Rockies. He lives on Vancouver Island and operates Mountains for Growth helping his clients gain valuable life experience.

Admission is by donation – net proceeds to benefit CRSAR.
