Course Details

The AIARE 2 is a three-day/24-hour course that provides backcountry travelers an opportunity to advance their decision making skills in more complicated situations such as being a leader within a small travel group, traveling in more complicated terrain, and/or developing a travel plan where online resources are scarce.

The AIARE 2 builds on the introductory avalanche hazard management model introduced in the AIARE 1 and adds to it the evaluation of critical hazard assessment factors. Students will describe and discuss weather, snowpack and avalanche processes, and identify how these processes relate to observations and travel within avalanche terrain.

All of our classroom sessions take place at RMU Tavern and Retail in downtown Breckenridge. Receive discounts on demo skis from RMU and FREE BEER from New Belgium Brewing during the course!

Course price includes a 3-day learning experience, use of Ortovox beacon, shovel, probe, field book, course manual, Certificate of Completion, and of course, beer.
