WMA Courses in April at Taos Ski Valley

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 again be in the Kinderkare building at Taos Ski Valley.  Basically right next to the Fire Station in the Ski Valley.

The GPS Coordinates are: 36.596187, -105.454368

Things To Bring


  • 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… 🙂


As we are in the Ski Valley during the off season, there will not be any lunch options, and unfortunately we will not have a long enough lunch break to head back down into town.  You will need to bring your own food and beverages.  We will, however, 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… 🙂
