|UPDATE: This trip will now include topics pertaining to all
elements of an avalanche rescue (search, rescue, and first
aid). The goal here is to provide participants with the skills
that they feel comfortable/confident in performing all
elements of an avalanche companion rescue from start-
finish. Many companion rescue scenarios stop at the point
that the victim is dug out from the snow, however in reality,
another very real scenario of treating the injuries sustained
from burial and in the avalanche itself present themselves.
While these skills could be gained and understood from a
first aid course exclusively (note: this clinic is NOT a
substitute for a wilderness first aid course, and hence
participants should ideally come in with some basic (16 hr)
first aid training to not feel overwhelmed), the goal here is to
focus on common problems you'd deal with as first
responders to an avalanche accident, and hence will focus
on injuries most likely in avalanche incidents.
In addition, due to unfortunate circumstances regarding a
skiing injury, I cannot lead this trip anymore. Zack Wentz will
be taking over organization and leadership of this trip; so if
you have any questions, please email him at:
