Our AIARE Courses for 2024 are live.  To check out the schedule or sign up click here.  This winter we are excited to offer more courses than ever, along with two AIARE 1 Courses that are hut-based Jan. 5-7 and 12-14.  We are also offering a hut-based AIARE 2 + Companion Rescue class from Jan. 19-21.  On the first two weekends of January, you can take an AIARE 1 out of the Buck Creek Yurt, operated by Eagle Cap Mountain Guides.  This 2.5-day course includes two nights at the yurt, breakfast, and dinner.  Jan. 19-21 join us for an AIARE 2 + Companion Rescue Hut-based course. Additionally, we have a great lineup of our traditional hybrid courses, including 2 full field days at Anthony Lakes and Salt Creek Summit.

We are offering a Motorized Level 1, Companion Rescue Course, and Motorized Level 2 this winter as well. 

All the money generated from these courses goes into the WAC General Fund to pay for Avalanche Forecasting, website and weather station maintenance and more.  You get a great course and support your local non-profit avalanche center.  If you have any questions please get in touch with Development Director Rex Stanley at rex@wallowaavalanchecenter.org
