AIARE 1 Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain

Lectures Wed 2/19/20 &  TH 2/20/20 6:00pm-10:00pm

Field Trips: SAT 2/22/20 & SUN 2/23/20, start time TBD, but you will be in the field all day. Note, meeting place for Sunday Field day is the lecture location.  

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 terrai n choices in a group setting

Please note you must attend all lectures and field days. No refunds through the CMC or the guide company.  In addition, due to the high demand of these courses, there is  a $50 change fee assessed by the guide company for any changes to the chosen course.
