The National Conference on Wilderness Medicine Big Sky, MT

This highly acclaimed course focuses on a wide array of interesting and practical topics presented by noted authorities. The conference has unique optional hands-on workshops on topics ranging from outdoor survival skills to practical wilderness medical skills. Small interactive groups with outstanding instructors.

BIG SKY is the western skiing experience you've dreamed about: unbridled adventure, abundant snow, uncrowded terrain, ski-in and ski-out lodging and a natural friendliness that comes from small-town life in this corner of the Rockies. Big Sky is known for short lift lines, and two mountains of blissful terrain - sure to please everyone from the beginner to the fast and fearless.

The "Biggest Skiing in America," Big Sky gives you access to more skiing and total vertical feet than anywhere in the Unites States.
Famous for short or non-existent lift lines and uncrowded slopes. State-of-the-art lifts including a high speed, six-person, heated chair.
Above-tree-line skiing gives Big Sky a European f lavor accentuated by a breathtaking tram to the summit of Lone Peak (non-skiers welcome).

OPTIONAL comprehensive course leading to AWEP TM Certification that is designed to prepare physicians and other health care providers with an extensive background in key topics and practical skills needed to become a competent expedition, wilderness, or Search and Rescue Medical Provider.
