This will be an opportunity to practice your skills that you learned in your WFA/WFR  course, emphasis on splinting and bandaging in back country situations.  If we finish up early, we'll do some mock first aid scenarios.  We'll be indoors but bring your packs and gear as if you were leading a trip.   You may want knee pads for kneeling on the floor for the practice.

We'll try out some improvised splinting using gear we have with us.  Ski poles and foam sleeping pads work well.  There is no certification for this, only a chance to practice your basic first aid skills.  The leader is a first aid instructer for the national ski patrol.    





Preference sign up will be given for trip leaders and leaders in training until April 10th.  Past leaders looking to refresh and lead trips again are welcome.   If you are signing up but not a current trip leader or leader in training, I'll move your registration to the wait list until April 10th and then let you know if you are in.  If the session fills up, I'll offer a second one later in the spring.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
