Course Details

Imagine spending the weekend with avalanche professionals in the backcountry, learning about snow safety while sipping tea in front of a crackling wood stove, and skiing or snowboarding right to the hut to enjoy a cold beer while debriefing the day.

What sets our courses apart from the others?   Not only do we offer a weekend in an immaculate off-grid backcountry hut, we also provide the meals, support staff for getting your gear to the hut while you are out learning and practicing your skills and to clean up and haul your gear back out.  By choosing the hut-based setting, you'll have the opportunity to pick your instructors brains during fireside chats in the evening.  So, all you need to bring is your lunch, your favorite snacks, beverages (if you like sipping on a beer after a long day out in the snow), and a great attitude.  We'll take care of the rest!

Course price includes: 3 Day Hut Trip experience with AIARE Level 1 Certificate of Completion; breakfast and dinner in the hut; use of Ortovox beacon, shovel, probe; field book and course manual.
