Courses: AIARE Level 1

AIARE Level 1
This course provides an AIARE Level 1 certificate through the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE). Through both classroom and field instruction, students will be provided with lessons and exercises that are practically oriented, useful, and applicable in the basic understanding of avalanches. The course describes a framework for decision making and risk management in avalanche terrain. It focuses on identifying the right questions rather than on providing "answers." NOTE: The materials fee provides students with a certificate, a student manual, and field book. ADVISORY: Students should be competent backcountry skiers/snowboarders, i.e., have the ability to travel, ascend, and descend in the winter environment using the appropriate gear.
