This course reviews and addresses content from the AIARE curriculum. We strongly recommend an AIARE 1 (or equivalent) prerequisite, or multiple years of touring experience in groups.
We target a 6:1 maximum student-to-instructor ratio to ensure you get personal attention and reduce COVID risks. If you are interested in this course for a larger group, please contact email@example.com and we will arrange a private, tailored course that fits your needs.
Please note: All participants are required to carry a beacon, shovel, and probe to leave the base area and participate in a course. Equipment rentals are available, and we recommend booking those in advance. Courses do not include access to the mountain. Each participant in your group must reserve a day pass in addition to your course unless you have a Season Pass or you’re using part of a 4 Pack or 10 Pack.
