Avalanche Education - AIARE Level 1


AIARE Level 1 is for anyone, regardless of method of travel, who wants to recreate in or near avalanche terrain.  Participants may have attended some awareness classes or workshops or completed the Avalanche Rescue course, but neither are a prerequisite for this course.  Aspiring professionals will need to take the AIARE 1 and Avalanche Rescue as a prerequisite for the AIARE II or Pro 1 course.
