McCall Snowmobile AIARE Level 1
January 26 @ 8:00 am - January 28 @ 5:00 pm$525
In this AIARE Level 1 you will learn how to prepare for a backcountry trip, understand basic decision making in the field, and learn rescue techniques.
We are stoked that you’re interested in expanding your avalanche knowledge and we want to prepare everyone so that the course runs smoothly and is most beneficial. Although there is some classroom time we are going to have both in-class and field sessions so be prepared for both environments and for quick changes in between. Make sure your snowmobile is in good shape so that mechanic time isn’t a distraction because we are looking to ride about 20 miles per day for day 2 and 3. Beyond your normal riding gear we will provide all the necessary materials for classroom time and field books but be sure to have a 3-antenna transceiver (Avy beacon), a shovel, and a probe.
Be sure you have read and meet all the requirements laid out in the essential eligibility: https://avtraining.org/essential-eligibility-criteria/
We want to make sure that everyone in our group is getting the most out of the course so please reach out to me with any concerns about your abilities or equipment and be sure to arrive prepared and ready to learn.
