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 Powder Cats, Thousand Peaks Ranch, and the U.S. Forest Service, one full day of the AIARE 1 fieldwork is performed in a true, remote backcountry setting in the Uinta 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. For more information on skiing and riding with Park City Powder Cats, please visit pccats.com.
Students must be 16 years of age or older.

Private AIARE 1
White Pine Touring is now offering private AIARE 1 avalanche courses. Private AIARE 1 courses follow the same course guidelines and meet the same learning objectives as our public AIARE 1 courses. Private courses feature smaller class sizes, lower student-to-instructor ratios, customized scheduling and classroom locations, and they are more personalized to each group’s experience and goals.
