AIARE 1 Avalanche Course 2/6/15 – 2/8/15

Last weekend we had a great course run out of the AMC Highland Center. Fantastic snow conditions and very interactive participants led to 3 knowledge-filled days as we learned about decision making in the back-country. I apologize for keeping this post so brief but what little free time I have right now I am dedicating to prepare for this weekend’s AIARE 2 Course. I’m pretty excited about the first AIARE 2 course of the season but I won’t lie and say organizing 40 hours of classroom & field sessions for a 4 day course isn’t the slightest bit stressful. At least Mother Nature is providing the best possible outdoor classroom!

About David Lottmann

David grew up skiing in the Whites and started climbing at a summer camp just north of Mt. Washington when he was 16. Those first couple of years solidified climbing as a lifetime passion. From 1996-2000 he served in the USMC, and spent the better part of those years traveling the globe (18 countries). After returning to civilian life he moved to North Conway to focus on climbing and was hired in 2004 as a Rock and Ice Instructor. Since then Dave has taken numerous AMGA courses, most recently attaining a Single Pitch Instructor. He has completed a Level 3 AIARE avalanche course, is a Level 2 Course Leader, holds a valid Wilderness First Responder and is a member of Mountain Rescue Service. When David isn't out guiding he enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, backcountry skiing, trying to cook something new once a week and sampling new micro-brews. He lives in Conway, NH with his wife Michelle, son Alex, and daughter Madalena.
