Join GH members at an AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Safety course. These courses will help make you a safer and better informed backcountry user!

About the Course

The course we selected is the standard AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Course 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. CAG’s AIARE certified leaders and instructors will teach you how to recognize, manage, and minimize these hazards and reduce risks.

Price includes: Local AIARE Certified Course Leader and Instructors, 24-hour course with a 6:1 maximum instructor to student ratio, student manual and weather-proof AIARE field book, use of beacon, shovel and probe (if needed)!
