Thank you very much for registering to take a course with us.  We look forward to teaching you wilderness medicine.


The classes will run from 8am to 5pm every day.


This year we will be at Taos Tennis at Quail Ridge Taos, which is a little under a mile North on 150 (road up to the ski valley) from the 64 and 150 junction

Things To Bring


If you have a balance due (you opted to pay “Cash”, “Check at Course”, “Deposit”, or “Custom”), please bring final payment as Cash or Check (we will be unable to process credit cards at the site).


If you are a recert, please remember to bring your course materials (WARM Book, Lecture Notes, Scenario Book, Field Guide).


  • Clothing appropriate to the weather.  We will be outdoors as much as possible within the curriculum and will train snow or sunshine.  We recommend a wind/waterproof jacket of some kind.  The classroom can be a little chilly in the morning so you may want to bring fleece/wool/warmies/etc.
  • Sturdy walking shoes/boots.  There will likely still be snow, and the scenarios and simulations may be outside.  You may be required to transport patients through a variety of terrain.
  • Clothing that can get dirty.  You will be outside and we conduct hi-fidelity simulations complete with blood (and other unsavories).  Expect to get a little dirty… 🙂


This year we are closer to town, and there are some close by food options (including a supermarket).  We will have hot water and tea available, as well as access to a couple of mini fridges for perishables.

Optional (but useful)

  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Extra socks
  • Hat


Indoor bathrooms will be available on site… 🙂
