Our current primary objective is to develop a motorized-specific training curriculum for avalanche training, rescue, and education. We are working closely with AIARE to develop a training outline and procedure that integrates snowmobiles, the distances we travel, and the tools we carry. Please keep checking back with us, as we expect to have our first class published and available by May 1st, 2014.

The mission of the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education AIARE is to: ‘Save Lives Through Avalanche Education'. AIARE courses are designed to be a complete program of avalanche education. Within each course the lesson plans, student materials, and teaching aids are fully integrated. What you hear and see when an instructor delivers the content of a lesson plan in class or in the field is linked with what you take home when you leave.

Goals

The specific goals of AIARE are:

  • Increase the public awareness of avalanches and avalanche safety.

  • Provide high quality avalanche education thereby enhancing public awareness and safety.

  • Provide avalanche instructors with the curriculum, training and tools with which to educate students about the knowledge, methods, and decision making skills necessary to travel in avalanche terrain.

  • Develop an international network of professional avalanche educators, and provide educational development in the form of instructor training courses and opportunity for continued learning.

CURRENT CLASSES

Avalanche Training - Level 1

Avalanche Training - Level 1 - Decision Making In Avalanche Terrain

Students can expect to develop a good grounding in how to prepare for and carry out a trip, to understand basic decision making while in the field, and to learn rescue techniques required to find and dig up a buried person (if an avalanche occurs and someone in the party is caught).

Tyler's Backcountry Awareness

Intro Course - Tyler's Backcountry Awareness

This is the first step in the right direction. We will learn in the class room in the evening and then get out on the snow and practice the techniques learned in class. With a heavy focus on companion resource we teach you the most effective way to get your friends out of the snow in a worse case scenario. As well we spend a lot of time on group and terrain management in order to help guide your ride to prevent an accident.
