First Aid for Snow Travelers – There’s nothing quite so exhilarating as swooshing across the snow! But what do you do when you can suddenly no longer swoosh? Cooler temperatures and the desire to travel light, combined with the potential for long falls or high-speed collisions, bring a whole host of potential injuries and ailments along with all the usual suspects. Gain or refresh the skills you need to prevent, recognize and treat medical emergencies and injuries common to skiers, snowshoers and snowmobilers. We’ll address risk management, patient assessment, recognition and handling of life threats, and treatment of environmental, musculoskeletal, and soft tissue injuries. Scenarios will be apropos to the environment, and we’ll spend time discussing the layering system and practicing hypowraps and other lifesaving cold weather tricks. The best gift for any snow lovers you love!
Cost of $80 includes instruction, SOLO First Aid certification fee, and training materials. Need CPR certification? An optional CPR course immediately follows every First Aid for Snow Travelers course, for an additional $40.
