Med Kit for Backcountry Skiing

Lead wilderness medicine instructor Gavin Dawson reviews what should be in your med kit for backcountry skiing. 

Medical Kit Principles: Knowledge weighs nothing and takes up no space in your pack. Thus, before traveling into the backcountry, ensure you have an understanding of your partners, their health, and the local environmental hazards. Do not take supplies you do not know how to use. Practice with your gear first, then design your medical kit with modules. In this video, lead wilderness medicine instructor Gavin Dawson shares several tips on how to prepare an ideal backcountry ski first-aid kit.
