Course Details

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.

​What sets our courses apart from the others? Our Level 2 course will be run in an overnight winter camping format! By choosing the overnight setting not only will you full-fill the AIARE curriculum but you’ll also have the opportunity to hone in on your winter camping skill-sets as well as pick your instructors brains during tent-side chats in the evening. More time to chat about gear, decision making, and terrain selection as well as create long lasting and trustworthy future backcountry partners.
The course will span 3 days. The first day will be spent in the classroom and the following 2 days in the field with an overnight via tent or snow shelters.
Price includes dinner and breakfast on the overnight.
