Avalanche 2- Jan 10-12, 2020 near Whitefish, Montana

January 10, 2020 - January 12, 2020

$525

Course Description

The AIARE 2 is a three-day/24-hour course that provides backcountry travelers an opportunity to advance their decision making skills in more complicated situations such as being a leader within a small travel group, traveling in more complicated terrain, and/or developing a travel plan where resources are scarce. The AIARE 2 builds on the introductory avalanche hazard management model introduced in the AIARE 1 and adds to it the evaluation of critical hazard assessment factors. Students will describe and discuss weather, snowpack and avalanche processes, and identify how these processes relate to observations and travel within avalanche terrain.

OVERVIEW

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. On our AIARE 2 courses, 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!
