Instructional Course: Yurt-Based AIARE Avalanche 1: Loading Price...
The AIARE 1 is for current or aspiring backcountry skiers and snowboarders who want to recreate in or near avalanche terrain. Students must be able to travel in avalanche terrain on either skis or a splitboard. There are no other prerequisites.
Splitboards, alpine touring, and telemark ski packages are available to rent at a discounted rate (limited availability, reserve early!). Avalanche rescue gear (beacon, shovel, and probe) are included in the price.
For this course we are partnering with Yurtski Backcountry Lodging and Skiing and will be based out of a yurt in the Southern Swan Mountains, about a 4-hour drive from campus. The price includes instruction, lodging, and transportation, including a gear haul + tow service that will bring the group across all but 1.5 miles of the 8-mile ski in. Once settled, the group will have access to a huge variety of ski terrain, and by eliminating driving time you will have an opportunity to maximize your learning and skiing!
