AIARE Avalanche Level 1

Friday, December 13, 2019, 4:00 PM

AIARE  Avalanche Level 1 Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute December 13-15- Classroom - 9 am - 5 pm Field - 8 am - 5 pm $440.00 The level one is a 3 day/24 hour introduction to avalanche hazard management. The course is expected to: Provide a basic understanding of avalanches; Describe a framework for decision making and risk management in avalanche terrain; Focus on identifying the right questions, rather than on providing “answers”; Give lessons and exercises that are practically oriented, useful, and applicable in the field. Students can expect to develop a good grounding in how to prepare for and carry out a trip, to understand basic decision making while in the field, and to learn rescue techniques required to find and dig up a buried person (if an avalanche occurs and someone in the party is caught). A final debrief includes a knowledge quiz to test student comprehension and to give feedback to instructors on instructional tools. Students are encouraged and counseled on how to apply the skills learned and told that no course can fully guarantee safety, either during or after course completion. A link is made to a future AIARE Level 2 course. Sign up online or call 307-733-7425 to avoid online convenience fees.
