Ever wanted to learn what the ski patrollers know? Now’s your chance.

Mountain High Ski Patrol is hosting a 10-week Outdoor Emergency Care course beginning July 24, 2011. Open to the public, the award-winning program is offered through National Ski Patrol for patrollers and others in the outdoor recreation community faced with emergency situations.

Developed in the 1980s for National Ski Patrollers, the Outdoor Emergency Care program is geared towards rescuers operating in remote areas. The program has since evolved to include other outdoor emergency care providers such as wilderness medical technicians, river rafting and mountaineering guides, and members of search and rescue.

Today, Outdoor Emergency Care is considered the standard for outdoor emergency care training. The program is recognized by ski resorts and recreational facilities in all 50 states.
