This backpacking Instructor Course will be conducted in the Wind River Range in Wyoming. The course takes place in May which means the bulk of this course will take place in a late Winter environment. This inculdes using snowshoes to travel, navigating safely across snow bridges and frozen rivers and camping/cooking on snow. Your Rocky Mountain Instructor Course will build on any technical outdoor skills you already have as well as fine-tune your teaching skills through an in-depth examination of the NOLS curriculum. This 25-day course includes in-town leadership training, a backpacking expedition, basic training on teaching lessons and how to build and support inclusive course cultures. Successful completion of the instructor course will prepare you to work wilderness backpacking courses for NOLS.
