We have scheduled 8 level 1 AIARE Courses for the season and they are off to a great start! This is my second season presenting the AIARE curriculum and the 1st two courses of the season are already behind me. We got absolutely dumped on during the 1st course, which lead to high avalanche danger in many places on the Mt. Washington, but some great skiing! If you or someone you know plans on spending time in Avalanche Terrain this season consider taking a Level 1 Avy Course to learn the important decision making skills we need to travel safely in the backcountry. You can see what courses we have left this season here;
Here are some shots from the last two courses.
To each of my class participants, thanks for attending the courses! Practice your skills, enjoy the backcountry snow, and I hope to see you out touring in the near future!
