Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute (JHOLI)

Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute’s (JHOLI) mission is to provide the highest quality training through applied educational programs related to avalanche awareness education and wilderness medicine.

We provide American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE), Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities (SOLO), and American Heart Association (AHA) CPR/AED/First Aid curricula. Through successful completion of specific trainings, students will be able to obtain nationally recognized certificates in Avalanche Level 1 & 2, Wilderness First Aid (WFA), Wilderness First Responder (WFR), cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillation (AED), and First Aid.

JHOLI aims to deliver educational programs to help better inform the recreational and professional backcountry user. We believe an organized educational effort can significantly reduce accidents, save time and money, and equip backcountry users with the necessary skills to become outdoor leaders who safely enjoy the Tetons and all mountain ranges.
