Our 4-day AIARE Level 1 Courses are designed for locals who work or visitors who want to spend the day skiing. In this extended itinerary, we will spend Thursday and Friday nights in the classroom from 6-9 and spend Saturday and Sunday in the field practicing what we have learned. This comprehensive 4-day course focuses on hazard evaluation, decision-making and companion rescue in avalanche terrain. One full field day is devoted to slope evaluation, route finding, and risk management. These courses include proper instruction for basic safety and protocols for safe backcountry travel. Over the 4-days you will learn the skills and tools needed to navigate the winter mountains and evaluate the snowpack when traveling through avalanche terrain.
