AIARE Avalanche Course 2

Know before you go.

Jan 9 2023 - Jan 12 2023
The AIARE 2 is a 24-hour (4 day format) course that provides backcountry travelers an opportunity to advance their decision-making skills in more complex situations. Building on the AIARE Risk Management Framework introduced in the AIARE 1, the AIARE 2 prepares students for being leaders within a small travel group, traveling in more complicated terrain and/or developing a travel plan where resources are scarce.
Students will spend more time making their own snowpack interpretations through snowpit observations and tests, increasing their knowledge of snowpack processes and metamorphism & practicing group management through communication, teamwork and decision-making skills.
