Wilderness Medical Associates International

Crested Butte Outdoors International provides wilderness medicine and avalanche courses for clients who travel and work in remote places.

CBO provides students with the opportunity to learn both indoors and outdoors. Our instructional practices emphasize student inquiry, critical thinking, and problem solving.  Students put their knowledge and skills to work in addressing simulated and case study problems and issues. CBO´s headquarters are based in Whitefish, Montana near Glacier National Park. We are an Instructor Sponsor of WMA courses locally and throughout Montana as well as Lake Tahoe, Snowbird Ski Resort, Nepal, and anywhere you´d like to book us. We also specialize in American Institute for Avalanche Research & Education (AIARE) and avalanche dog and search and rescue (SAR) courses.

Our teaching staff headed by Susan Purvis offers a depth of experience in medicine, outdoor education, and wilderness travel that is hard to match. Susan received Congressional honors for her role in avalanche search and rescue with her K-9 partner, Tasha.

Contact us to train your staff, family or friends about preparedness and staying alive in the outdoors.
