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.

Companion Rescue course registration (coinciding with each Level 1 weekend) can be found here 

At the end of the AIARE 1 course the student should be able to:

  • Plan and prepare for travel in avalanche terrain.
  • Recognize avalanche terrain.
  • Describe a basic framework for making decisions in avalanche terrain.
  • Learn and apply effective companion rescue.
