AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Course-Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain provided by Payette Powder Guides
January 20 @ 8:00 am - January 22 @ 5:00 pm$525
This course provides 24 hours of education over a three day period. We will focus on avalanche terrain identification, learn and practice safe travel techniques, practice rescue scenarios, monitor changes in the snowpack while traveling in the backcountry, learn to make and record appropriate field observations, and practice developing a trip plan and choosing appropriate terrain before heading into the backcountry.
Day one of the town-based course will be at our base area, outside reviewing the required 4 hour online pre course learning. Day two and three we will travel by snowcat to Lick Creek Summit, at 7,000 feet in elevation, for field sessions touring into higher terrain.
