Description

In our efforts to support the awareness and implementation of mountain safety education, Big Heart Big Hands is offering this FREE full-day workshop with Desert Mountain Medicine on Saturday March 3rd at Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy in Minturn. This course is underwritten by Survival Frog. Lunch and prizes included.

What can those who attend Winter Mountain Safety 101 expect to learn/walk away with?

Lots! Although this is a basic course, it will be packed with information. Our intention is to provide an overview of the vast sub-topics that comprise winter mountain safety. This will provide attendees with a solid foundation of understanding, upon which they can build. We will provide resources and suggestions for continuing their education on this complex subject.

With a focus on prevention, attendees will develop a better understanding how to help avoid, or prepare for, the most common mountain winter emergencies. Since each sub-topic in this subject is quite complex, attendees will learn the importance of higher level instruction and training.

Therefore, although this course will provide many answers and much understanding, it will simultaneously spawn important questions and a desire to learn more. This will help attendees organize and prioritize their next steps to becoming safer outdoor adventurers in our wintertime mountainous environment.

Don’t hesitate – take the next steps to prepare yourself for the worst!
