The AIARE 1 course is the basis of all avalanche education in America. This is the first step to safely venturing into the backcountry in winter. We will go over everything from basic snow science to route selection to the human factors and common causes of avalanches as well as what to do in the event of an avalanche. Time will be spent about half in the classroom and half in the field. Join an existing KMAC AIARE 1 Course or have us schedule a custom course for you!
