AIARE Avalanche Level 2 Course
February 18 - February 20$505
The AIARE Level 2 Avalanche Course – Analyzing Snow Stability & Avalanche Hazard is for advanced backcountry skiers and riders, especially those who venture deeper into the backcountry or recreate in areas without a local avalanche bulletin.
The AIARE Level 2 builds on the introductory avalanche hazard management model introduced in the AIARE Level 1 and adds to it the evaluation of critical hazard assessment factors. In the classroom, you will learn about mountain weather and key snowpack processes. During field tours you will learn critical snowpack and weather observation skills, advanced terrain management, and tour leadership techniques.
Prerequisites for this course include a previous Level 1 Course and having taken the new Avalanche Rescue Course since 2017. If you haven’t taken the Avalanche Rescue Course, there is one scheduled the day before this program.
