AIARE 1 Avalanche Course, 1/2/14 – 1/5/14

Yesterday we finished our 2nd AIARE 1 Avalanche Course of the season and it was an excellent 3 days. Back to back Nor’ Easter’s left us with a varied and interesting snow-pack to travel on and highly engaged participants really added up to a productive three days! I’m keeping this post short as I have another avalanche class starting tomorrow I need to prepare for.
