For anyone who travels in the backcountry or plans on leaving ski resort boundaries, an AIARE 1 avalanche course is a must. This level one course teaches travel techniques, basic rescue procedures, and information that should be standard for anyone adventuring in the backcountry, with or without a guide. Course participants can expect to develop a solid knowledge base on how to prepare for and execute a backcountry trip, a responsible and educated decision making process, and how to rescue a buried person (should a member of your party be caught in an avalanche.) Based in the Park City area, this course includes a mix of classroom time and fieldwork that takes place over three days for 24 hours of total instruction time.
Thanks to our unique partnership with Park City Powder Cats & Heli-Ski and Thousand Peaks Ranch one full day of fieldwork is spent at Thousand Peaks Ranch – providing students with true backcountry learning experiences. We would like to thank our partners for helping ensure that AIARE 1 students in the Wasatch Mountains receive the best possible avalanche education.
