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.

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 terrai n choices in a group setting
