On April 17, 2019, Parks Canada received a report of overdue climbers on the East Face of Howse Peak, a 1300 meter, highly technical alpine climb located 60 km north of Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies. This presentation will cover the search planning and operations, media strategy, critical incident debriefing and subsequent investigation to ultimately figure out what happened that day on Howse Peak.
