Avalanche Rescue

Promote your well-being in the backcountry by expanding your knowledge and skill set through formal avalanche education.

The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE) provides world-class education through the only internationally recognized curriculum offered in the U.S.

Prerequisites: Participants should be prepared to travel in backcountry terrain (by ski or split board, snowshoe if no other option) in potentially inclement weather and mountainous conditions at altitude.

Advanced reservations are required.

Some personal items provided by participant(s); see the gear list below.

AIARE Rescue Course

AIARE Avalanche Rescue courses are new this year, and are one-day intensives focusing on rescue scenarios. This is NOT a replacement of AIARE Level 1 and does not cover the same information. It should be considered as supplementary avalanche education. As of the beginning of the ’17-’18 winter season, AIARE has made the one-day avalanche rescue course a prerequisite for AIARE Level 2 courses, which are now 3 days in length.
