Why Tyler’s Backcountry Awareness?

After a tragic accident in 2012, founder Brian Lundstedt saw a void in the motorized community and set out to help. Motorized instructors were few and far between with often outdated information and techniques. While receiving his training, he found that the current model wasn’t working and set to change that.

With all of his passion for the sport, he encouraged conversation, eventually working its way to the curriculum development team at the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE). This set into motion the gears that brought change to our method of travel.

After years of development, the curriculum is now available and delivered in a hands-on manner. These classes are fun and more importantly, very applicable to every day in the backcountry. With a team of educators ensuring up to date information, Tyler’s Backcountry Awareness offers an education that will travel with you on every ride. Our special edition mobile classroom also allows for onsite learning for both the classroom and in the field sessions.
