Advanced Backcountry Training
Ready to ramp up your knowledge in the backcountry? Join our friends at PRIVAL USA to develop stronger leadership skills with an AIAIRE Level 2 Avalanche Course. This course is designed for students who have successfully completed an AIAIRE Level 1 Course.
NOTE: Under AIARE’s new curriculum structure, a companion rescue course is a mandatory prerequisite before taking your Level 2 Avalanche Course. PRIVAL also offers companion rescue courses throughout the winter. Get more info here.
PRIVAL + AIARE Level 2 Avalanche Courses, $450
The AIARE Level 2 course builds on the introductory avalanche management theories introduced in the AIARE Level 1 course. The 3-day / 24-hour course is designed to advance backcountry travelers’ decision making skills in more complicated situations. Students will have hands-on experience with weather observations, snowpack assessments, and terrain selection. Students will also develop stronger leadership and theoretical skills that involve traveling in small groups, traveling in complex terrain, and developing a travel plan where online resources are scarce.
Course-long splitboard demos available from Pallas Snowboards for $100. Email us to check availability.
