Verse yourself in the basics of avalanche safety quickly and efficiently with the AIARE Level 1 Course in Jackson Hole. The course features a hybrid approach, meaning that the first portion of it will be held online, while days 2 and 3 will take place in the field. Learn how to properly read the snow and weather reports, spot and identify hazards and even lead a tour under the watchful eye of a skilled guide!
This comprehensive course is meant to teach you about proper hazard evaluation, decision-making and companion rescue practices in avalanche situations. You will discover techniques for evaluating hazards and managing risks when traversing avalanche-prone terrain.
Day 1: Two days prior to the field education, you will have an online meeting with your guide and introduction to the course. You and the guide will go through the avalanche bulletin and examine the plan for the rest of the tour.
Day 2: In the morning of day 2, you will be learning about proper beacon and probe use, as well as strategic shoveling. After that, the guide will teach you about proper weather and snow observations, testing snow pits and avalanche terrain ID.
Day 3: The final day is reserved for a participant-led tour. You will get the chance to take the initiative and test the skills you’ve learned during the course.
