AIARE 1: Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain
For anyone looking to ski outside of resort boundaries, a solid education in backcountry and avalanche safety is a must-have to stay safe. Our AIARE 1 course provides a foundation for educated backcountry travel, including how to be prepared when venturing beyond backcountry gates. Insight into route finding, terrain, decision making, and rescue techniques is provided. With a total of 24 hours of curriculum, our AIARE 1 avalanche course gives you what you need to look at backcountry terrain with careful eyes.
Thanks to our unique partnership with Park City Municipal Corporation, Talisker and Empire Pass Master Owners Association, two full days of the AIARE 1 fieldwork are performed in a true, remote backcountry setting in the Wasatch Mountains. We would like to thank our partners for their continued help and support in ensuring that AIARE 1 students in the Wasatch Mountains receive the best possible avalanche education.
Students must be 16 years of age or older.
