Course Details

Avalanche rescue skills are an absolute must for all individuals recreating on snow in the mountains. This one day course is specifically designed to help educate backcountry users on how to respond if you or your partners are caught in an avalanche. Whether you are new to backcountry travel or are a seasoned veteran, this course is for you.

Avalanche rescue, like all skills, must be refreshed and diligently practiced. AIARE recommends that all backcountry travelers keep their skills fresh by taking an Avalanche Rescue course and at least every other year. If this is your first avalanche education course, you will learn the basics of companion rescue and a broad overview of the avalanche phenomenon. If it’s been a few years since you last took a course, you can expect to improve your avalanche rescue skills and expand your tool kit with more advanced topics. Grab your favorite backcountry buddy and make sure you are both dialed and ready for the flakes to fly this winter.
