‘WOLF’ to sponsor wilderness first aid course


For the past six years, the Winter Outdoor Learning Fund (WOLF) has worked to promote outdoor awareness throughout Southwest Colorado.

Most of WOLF’s participation has come in the form of scholarships for Avalanche 1 courses each winter, which makes sense as many of our board members spend this time as ski patrollers, making sure to ensure that the Wolf Creek ski area is safe for all winter enthusiasts. They know the importance of being well informed and prepared in the snowy backcountry and want to pass this on to our community.

In August, however, WOLF will focus on the medical side of the outdoor industry by hosting a wilderness first aid and CPR course. This course, taught by Desert Mountain Medicine and led by one of our own Wolf Creek Ski Patrollers, Elsie Hume, will provide students with the tools they need in the event of an emergency while hiking, biking, d ‘a hunt or an outdoor rafting. Class is held Tuesday August 23 and Wednesday August 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Pagosa Springs High School, room B-24.

The deadline to register for the Wilderness First Aid / CPR course is Monday August 16.

There are 15 places available for this course and the cost is $ 200. Ten scholarships for this course are also available through WOLF. Anyone interested in registering for the course or applying for a scholarship can email Darcy DeGuise at [email protected] for more information.
