Description

AIARE Logo

For anyone who travels in the backcountry or plans on leaving ski resort boundaries, an AIARE 1 avalanche course is a must. This level one course teaches travel techniques, basic rescue procedures, and information that should be standard for anyone adventuring in the backcountry, with or without a guide. Course participants can expect to develop a solid knowledge base on how to prepare for and execute a backcountry trip, a responsible and educated decision making process, and how to rescue a buried person (should a member of your party be caught in an avalanche.) Based in the Park City area, this course includes a mix of classroom time and fieldwork that takes place over three days for 24 hours of total instruction time.

Park City Powder Cats

Thanks to our unique partnership with Park City Powder Cats & Heli-Ski and Thousand Peaks Ranch, one full day of AIARE 1 fieldwork is performed in a true, remote backcountry setting. A snowcat transports students up to the staging yurt, allowing for convenient touring access to a wide range of slopes and snow conditions that serve as an invaluable teaching tool for our instructors. We would like to thank Park City Powder Cats & Heli-Ski for their continued help and support ensuring that AIARE 1 students in the Wasatch Mountains receive the best possible avalanche education.
