Aiare 1, 2, and Rescue
In a split second, an avalanche can turn a day of winter fun into a nightmare. By the time you know what's happening, you're in a life-or-death scenario. Will you make it out alive? Will your friends?
The winter back-country is complex. If you're venturing into it, you need education so you can understand the hazards and learn how to manage risk.
The core of an AIARE course is The AIARE Risk Management Framework. The AIARE Framework is a step by step back-country risk management process made of daily and seasonal routines and agreements that foster consensus with your partners. The AIARE Framework also supports your continued learning with a process that helps you continue to build experience after your course.
