This course is sponsored by the Northwest Outward Bound School (NWOBS) and is conducted at the Heli-Ski Barn near the Freestone Inn located in Washington's upper Methow Valley. The barn offers a generous classroom space for lectures and simple labs. Tucked in the foothills of the Cascades, the site offers access to numerous simulation areas right out the door and within a short drive. The realistic simulation sites make this a fun place to take a WFR course.
Note: NWOBS sponsors this course as part of its 50-day Northwest Instructor Development course. Alcoholic beverages, smoking, and pets are prohibited.
