Avalanche Instruction

AIARE introduction to Avalanche Safety 1 Day

This is the best way to get started learning the basics of avalanche safety. We spend most of the day on the mountain with "hands-on" learning about the snowpack, terrain, weather, people and the combined effect on avalanche danger. You'll learn about the danger rating system and how to interpret the avalanche bulletin.

Very importantly, you will be introduced to travel techniques including how to ski with your team members to help reduce risk. The course also covers an introduction to avalanche safety gear including a transceiver, probe and shovel along with a demonstration of a complete and efficient companion rescue.

This course is a great start. It should be soon followed up with a complete AIARE Avalanche Level 1 course, taught by ASI.

AIARE Avalanche Level 1 LIFT 3 Day

AIARE Level 1 LIFT covers the same curriculum as our traditional Level 1. By using the ski lifts, we have quicker access to the higher alpine zone, viewing a variety of avalanche terrain. It's for skiers and snowboarders with lots of lift-served experience wanting to take a new look at better understanding the avalanche phenomena along with sidecountry travel techniques.

Please familiarize yourself with the following resources as they will help prepare you for the topics discussed in the course.

An AIARE Level 1 Certificate will be awarded upon completion.
