The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education’s mission is to “save lives through avalanche education”. We have no doubt this course could save your life.
AIARE 2 is a 4 day avalanche safety course that provides backcountry riders with the opportunity to advance their avalanche knowledge and decision making skills when going off-piste.
The AIARE 2 builds on from the basic avalanche safety skills introduced in the AIARE 1, and adds to the analysis of factors critical to evaluation snow stability and avalanche risk. If you have not already done so, you should complete the AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Safety Course first.
AIARE avalanche safety courses are the result of a collaboration between Canadian, Swiss and American mountain guides. AIARE sets curriculum standards for avalanche education from recreational to professional levels. The curriculum evolves with changes in the world of avalanche research and education. All AIARE instructors are certified and required to stay current for the level of course they are teaching.
There are currently 60 registered AIARE course providers and 200 instructors worldwide. Chamonix Experience is one of only two recognised AIARE course providers in Europe - more information can be found at www.avtraining.org.
