This course is an American Institute for Avalanche Research And Education (AIARE) Level 2 Avalanche Course: Analyzing Snow Stability and Avalanche Hazard. 

This AIARE 2 course is a 3-day program that provides backcountry leaders the opportunity to advance their avalanche knowledge and decision-making skills.

It is designed for more-experienced recreational travelers and builds on the introductory avalanche hazard management model presented in the Level 1 course, adding to it the evaluation of factors critical to snow stability evaluation. Our class format caters to working professionals and students.

  • Goal: Advance understanding of avalanche terrain, particularly from the perspective of stability analysis.

  • Discuss how the snowpack develops and metamorphoses over time; and discuss the factors that contribute to spatial variability.

  • Learn standard observation guidelines and recording formats for factors that influence or indicate snow stability. SWAG MODULE.

  • Advance understanding of avalanche release and triggering mechanisms.
