Our AIARE 2 is a 24-hour course intended to improve backcountry decision making and terrain management skills. This course includes 8 hours of pre-course AIARE on-line ciriculum to be completed before the course and 2 full days of outdoor field based instruction.
The AIARE 2 builds on the introductory avalanche hazard management model introduced in the AIARE 1 and adds to it the evaluation of critical hazard assessment factors. Students will describe and discuss weather, snowpack and avalanche processes, and identify how these processes relate to observations and travel within avalanche terrain.
Student learning outcomes
Participants must have the ability to travel in avalanche terrain on backcountry skis or splitboard-no snowshoes are allowed on this course. An AIARE 1 Avalanche Course and the AIARE Avalanche Rescue course is required before you take the AIARE 2. A winter of practical experience after the AIARE 1 course is recommended before taking the AIARE 2 course.
