Gravity Haus has secured 18 spots for AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Safety classes in December, January + February (6 spaces/class). These hard-to-find classes are reserved for Gravity Haus members only on a first come first served basis. Regularly priced at $595/person, but available now to Gravity Haus members for $550/person.
The courses are the standard AIARE Level 1 Avalanche 3-Day course, offered in the traditional classroom and field instruction format to introduce participants to the hazards of traveling in avalanche terrain.
Traveling in the backcountry requires a solid understanding of avalanche risk and the knowledge to mitigate these risks through appropriate terrain assessment and decision making.

- Basics of route selection and terrain management
- Managing risk and decision making
