Ian Ellis


CO, United States




Ian has called southwest Colorado home for the past ten years focusing on skiing and climbing objectives around the San Juan range. Pre hospital patient care in the mountainous environment is Ian’s passion and he has worked extensively with Telluride ski patrol and Silverton Ambulance. Ian is currently the search and rescue training coordinator and a full time EMT with Silverton Ambulance Association.  “I truly love teaching medicine and search and rescue tactics in austere settings. The dynamic environment requires me to be sharp and as focused as possible in order to provide optimal care for my patients”. When not working you can find Ian around Ouray climbing choss or pushing his bike up some punishing trail with his dog Ziggy. Ian aims to attend Paramedic school and focus on teaching EMS and wilderness medical education.
