The AIARE 1 is for anyone, regardless of method of travel, who wants to recreate in or near avalanche terrain. AIARE 1 is a three day/24 hours introduction to avalanche hazard mitigation. Students can expect to develop a good grounding in how to prepare for and carry out a backcountry 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 part is caught).

This is a hybrid course which includes 8 hours of pre course online learning.  Therefore, the course will entail two full field days. Pre course online learning materials will be sent out a month before the course starts.

The Wallowa Avalanche Center is offering the AIARE 1, January 14-15, and will take place near Joseph at the Salt Creek Summit sno park.
