AIARE 1 Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain

Lectures Wed 12/5/18 &  TH 12/6/18 6:00pm-10:00pm

Field Trips: SAT 12/8/18 & SUN 12/9/18 either in Rocky Mountain National Park or Roosevelt National Forest , start time TBD, but you will be in the field all day.

The AIARE 1 Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain 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
