AIARE 1 : Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain



Lectures TH 1/2518 &  Fri 1/26/18 6:00pm-10:00pm



Field Trips: SAT 1/27/18 & SUN 1/28/18, either in Rocky Mountain National Park or Roosevelt National Forest , start time TBD, but you  are in the field  all day



The AIARE 1 is a three-day / 24-hour introduction to avalanche hazard management. This course is offered through Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, a boulder based AIARE provider.



Students can expect to develop a good grounding in how to prepare for and carry out a backcountry trip, to understand basic decision making while in the field, and to learn rescue techniques required to find and dig up a buried person (if an avalanche occurs and someone in the party is caught).



At the end of the AIARE 1 course the student should be able to:




  • Develop a plan for travel in avalanche terrain.

  • Demonstrate the ability to identify avalanche terrain.

  • Effectively use the AIARE Decision Making Framework to make terrain choices in a group setting

  • Demonstrate effective companion rescue.



No refunds unless someone is found to take your spot.
