This course is intended for recreational backcountry skiers and split borders looking to develop the tools to get out in the snow on their own. The American Institute for Avalanche Safety and Education (AIARE) Level 1 is a 2-day, 24-hour introduction to avalanche hazards. With a mix of both virtual classroom and field time, the focus of the course is to learn how to recognize hazards, how to manage & minimize them and finally how to respond in case of an emergency. Students will come away from the course having learned:

  • How to prepare and plan for a backcountry tour
  • How to analyze an avalanche forecast
  • How to identify avalanche terrain & avalanche types
  • How to recognize hazardous conditions
  • Basic snowpack understanding
  • Route selection and terrain features
  • Snowpack tests and interpretation
  • Educated decision making
  • Basic rescue techniques
  • Group management

Online Curriculum: Our program includes AIARE online education training. This online training allows students to move at their own pace, learning about the avalanche phenomenon prior to the field sessions of the course. With this preparation, students can use the two days with instructors to dive further into avalanche theory and work closely on decision making in the field. The online education generally takes 4-6 hours and can be completed at any time prior to the course. We will also be hosting a 2-hour Zoom meeting with the instructors on the Thursday prior to the field weekend to go over additional education topics, answer any questions, and prepare for the field portion of the course.


​Requirements: Basic familiarity and experience with backcountry travel and equipment is required.​ Aspiring professionals will need to take the AIARE 1 and Avalanche Rescue as a prerequisite for the Pro 1 course.
