Most of us have our beacon/shovel/probe when we leave the trailhead in the winter, but how many of us actually know how to use them proficiently? If your buddy is under the snow, do you have the skills to get him out in a timely manner?
The AIARE Avalanche Rescue is a one-day stand-alone course that is intended to be retaken on a regular basis in order to maintain your best practices in rescue techniques and gear. New participants will learn the basics of companion rescue, while return participants will expand their skill set with advanced topics and realistic scenario practice to help improve their skills after the course.
Each participant will have the opportunity to receive professional coaching and will receive a rescue card acknowledging completion date at the course end.
AIARE Avalanche Rescue is a prerequisite for the AIARE 2 and Pro 1 courses. AIARE recommends that all backcountry travelers keep their skills current by taking an Avalanche Rescue Course and receiving a rescue card at least every other year.
