AIARE Level 1 – Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain

In 2021 there will be 4 sessions of AIARE Level 1, Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain, offered.

If you ski, board or snowshoe in avalanche terrain this 24-hour standardized school will educate you about how to make decisions while in avalanche terrain, read and understand the CAIC daily avalanche report, recognize terrain while in the field.

All sessions led by Karin Pocock, AIARE Course Leader and AMGA Certified Rock Guide, AMGA Apprentice Alpine and Ski Guide, Professional Member of both American and Canadian Avalanche Associations, Irwin Guides of Crested Butte.

AIARE has moved from in person classroom sessions to on-line webinars and videos for student self-paced study.  All on-line materials must be completed before students join the field work at Berthoud Pass, assuming CMC is again granted historical permits.

To ease the pain of weekend ski traffic congestion we are offering one session in March at the beginning of the week.

Registration for Session 1 is limited to 15 students; registration for Sessions 2, 3 and 4 is limited to 18 students each.
