The AIARE Avalanche Rescue Course is a one-day, stand-alone course that is designed for new and experienced recreational backcountry travelers, as well as aspiring avalanche professionals. New participants will learn the basics of companion rescue, while more experienced participants will have an opportunity to improve their current skill set, as well as learn about advanced topics through realistic scenario practice. Participants who have previously taken an AIARE 1 course will find value in reviewing previously learned rescue skills, as well as expanding their rescue knowledge, skills and abilities beyond the basics.

A minimum of 3 participants is required to run this course. Participants must be prepared for snow travel. Course cost includes the rental of all avalanche rescue equipment.

At the end of the Avalanche Rescue course each participant will be able to:

  • Describe what to do if they or a member of their party is caught in an avalanche.
  • Identify and be able to use gear necessary for avalanche rescue.
  • Set up a realistic scenario in order to practice an avalanche rescue response.
  • Improve their response skills and times during the course with feedback from instructors and peers.
  • Develop a plan for continued practice.
