Course Info

Colorado Adventure Guides in partnership with Desert Mountain Medicine are proud to offer our AIARE AVALANCHE RESCUE + WILDERNESS FIRST AID combo course.  This 3-day course will help you gain a full understanding of the skills and training needed in a real-life avalanche rescue and/or medical scenario. In every avalanche rescue course you will learn what to do in the case of an avalanche, all the way up until you recover a victim. But what next? That is not the end. This is where your medical training will come into play and that is why we have developed this combo Rescue/Medical course.

The 2-day WFA course is an introduction to wilderness medicine for winter backcountry users. The WFA covers basic life support (CPR) as well as some traumatic injuries and environmental illnesses common with winter recreation. The 3rd day is an AIARE Avalanche Rescue Course.
