NZAC Unwin Lodge Aoraki Mt Cook will be hosting its first ever weekend of Mountain Medicine workshops this October. The weekend will offer climbers, trampers, mountaineers and skiers the chance to learn about mountain medicine from experts in the field and share knowledge and experience with others interested in Mountain Medicine.
Spend Saturday and/or Sunday (13-14 October) learning new skills through a series of workshops, and join us for beer and a BBQ dinner on Saturday evening whilst guest speakers from the Geraldine Volunteer Fire Brigade Road Crash Rescue Team give insight into what they do, why and how. Hear firsthand about the high level the team operate at to be able to deal with these extremely difficult emergency situations and their ability compete in rescue challenges on an international scale.
