Weather and Other Challenges

Weather

The Southwest is known to host extremes in temperature and weather conditions. Though warm, sunny weather is typical, students should expect anything from monsoon rains and extreme heat to snow, wind, and subfreezing temperatures. Subfreezing temperatures are uncommon in October, but can occur at night. Please make sure you bring the appropriate gear from our equipment list to help protect yourself from sun and overheating as well as to keep warm and dry in inclement conditions.


Terrain

At times on this course you will travel in areas characterized by steep slopes, rocky terrain, and sheer cliffs. Travel to rock cliffs can be exclusively off-trail, requiring constant attention to route finding. The rock can be loose and easily breakable, the vegetation can be dense and is often thorny, adding to the challenge of hiking. At times, you may be far from roads, so in the event of an accident or illness, it may take hours to get to a medical facility.


Remoteness

For the duration of your course, you’ll be miles from the amenities of civilization. Ambulances and hospitals may be hours away. All NOLS instructors maintain wilderness medicine certifications and are equipped with well-stocked first aid kits to provide care in the event of an emergency.


Wildlife

The Southwest is home to rattlesnakes and other potentially harmful reptiles, insects, and mammals. Various species of cactus and other plants with sharp spines can make it a challenge to move around at times. An important part of the curriculum is learning to be aware of your surroundings and being able to identify these hazards in order to reduce the chance of injury.
