The Mountain Guides, Montana and Crested Butte Outdoors presents AIARE level 1 avalanche course. To sign up you will log onto THE MOUNTAIN GUIDES website.
Located in beautiful Whitefish near the West entrance to Glacier National Park, The Mountain Guides Montana offers avalanche courses and skills clinics to help you begin and refine your avalanche safety and knowledge and help you become a safer, more competent back country adventurer. Instructors Kenny Gasch and Susan Purvis are both instructors for the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE). In our AIARE courses we’ve taken it to the next level by providing students with an ideal learning environment for avalanche education with a one-of-a-kind wilderness venue. We have partnered with Great Northern Powder Guides to provide a three day, yurt-based course in the heart of the Stillwater State Forest. Lodging, meals at the yurt and transportation from the highway to the yurt via snowcat are all included.
We highly encourage every backcountry user to take a Level 1 or 2 AIARE Avalanche Education Course and to follow up with yearly practice, so you enjoy a long lifetime of rewarding backcountry experiences. Along with our AIARE Courses, we offer a number of clinics and opportunities that get you into the mountains to put your back country skills to work!
Payment can be made by PayPal or by mailing a check payable to Crested Butte Outdoors, LLC for the appropriate course. We will accept deposits equal to 50% of the full course price if you pay by check.
