AIARE 2 Avalanche Course - Wasatch Backcountry

08:00 am - 01/12/2018

@ Prival

64 W Fayette Ave
Salt Lake City UT  84101



You took the AIARE 1 and want to continue your education? You came to the right place! 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 online resources are scarce.

The course 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.

Student learning outcomes:

-Differentiate where specific avalanche hazards
exist within the landscape and identify avalanche
terrain where consequences may be more severe.

-Use and interpret weather, snow, and avalanche
observations to locate appropriate terrain prior to
entering and while in the field.

-Demonstrate leadership skills within a small team
that include facilitating small group discussion,
promoting appropriate terrain selection, and
utilizing simple risk management strategies.

-Implement a basic forecasting framework that can
be used in conjunction with and in the absences of
local supporting avalanche information.

****New for this season, the redesigned AIARE 2 is designed**** specifically to meet the needs of advanced recreational students who have already taken an AIARE 1 and Avalanche Rescue class.
