AIARE Level 1 Course
Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides is a leader in avalanche safety and education, with nearly a decade of experience providing top-quality winter education across the Front Range. Our AIARE Level I Courses are designed to fit around a typical workday schedule to maximize learning time around everyday life. The format is a four-hour remote session plus some self-paced learning and two full-day field days in Rocky Mountain National Park or Loveland Pass area.
In addition, we have partnered with Backcountry Access (BCA) to provide our students with the latest and best in avalanche beacons, probes, and shovels, which are available for rent to our students for the duration of the course at no additional charge.
AIARE Level I is meant to teach the fundamentals of avalanche safety including reading terrain, choosing a safe ascent and descent route, mitigating hidden dangers, and learning to locate and rescue a buried companion. Although we love the mountains, sometimes the mountains don’t love us, and we want to be sure that we are providing the best way to mitigate dangerous situations.
