  1. Im going to throw out a guess to start up this conversation... The contract will be more than likely awarded to a company or companies that are fairly new to the heavy world, one(s) who have very little experience or knowledge in the operating cost associated with such machines. A company that will justify the low price of said contract by using lines such as ; "we do it for cash flow..." or "our machine(s) are all paid for" It definitely won't be to a company that has been operating heavies for any time, because they know the true cost ! it's going to be just like medium

  2. Be prepared to adapt..or in some cases completely ignore some of the fundamentals...especially "always turn out, away from the mountain". The mountain course will teach you some great standard practices, but you will constantly need to apply and adapt them. This becomes relevant above the treeline, in marginal weather. Never lose reference. Cling to that #### like your life depends on it. it does. Common sense prevails. If something doesn't feel right, it likely isn't. Always leaving yourself an "out" is in my humble, probably the best thing to take away from a BCFS mountain course.
