Avalanche Course | Colorado | New Mexico
Level 1, Level 2, Level 3
AIARE 1 | AIARE 2 | AIARE 3
Taking an avalanche course is an absolute requirement for those going into the backcountry. Understanding avalanche behavior is a fundamental skill for any backcountry traveler whether you are snowshoeing on a quiet trail or ripping it up on a snowmobile.We use a standardized curriculum from the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE). Why AIARE? One word sums it up, “standardization”. If you take an AIARE course from any AIARE instructor in the world and then go to take another AIARE course, the next instructor already knows what you are coming into the course with. Many times, those who have not taken a previous AIARE course are deficient and have a hard time making up for the lack of a good foundation in concepts or technique.
