AIARE Avalanche Rescue Course (Cancelled)
Know before you go.
AIARE Avalanche Rescue is an 8 hour course intended to be retaken on a regular basis in order to keep abreast of best practices in rescue techniques and to refresh rescue skills. Participants will expand their skill set with advanced topics in transceiver searches, methodical probing and strategic shoveling through drills and realistic scenario practice. Companion rescue is a last resort, but it's essential to keep these skills fresh in the unfortunate event a backcountry partner needs help.
