Canadian Society of Mountain Medicine Diploma Course

We just finished up a fantastic week with the Canadian Society of Mountain Medicine working as instructors and evaluators for this fledgeling program.  Spending four days in Whistler and one rockclimbing in Squamish we capped the week off with two days mountaineering in the unforgettable Tantalus Range.  The weather was impeccable and the doctors got full value from some challenging impromptu “night scenarios.”  Alpine conditions could not have been better with good overnight freezes, strong crevasse bridges and easy travel on supportive snow.  A big shout of out of thanks to everyone involved for making this a super fun week.   We look forward to our next program with the intrepid alpine doctors in the spring!
