Event: AIARE Introduction to Avalanche Safety 1 Day
Location: Backcountry Adventure Center
Date(s): Sat, Feb 16, 2013

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.
