Our AIARE Level 1 Courses are designed for people looking to build a foundation for safe backcountry travel. 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. This course involves two night sessions in Boulder on Thursday and Friday as well as two full-day field sessions in Rocky Mountain National Park.
