AIARE Avalanche Rescue is a prerequisite for the AIARE 2 and Pro 1 courses. We recommend that all backcountry travelers keep their skills current by taking an Avalanche Rescue Course at least every other year.

You must be an advanced-intermediate skier/rider for this avalanche course and be comfortable on both on and off-piste terrain in a variety of conditions. Here is a good example of intermediate skiers and riders.

Backcountry 1.0 course, or 5-10 days of touring experience.
Must be an advanced intermediate skier/rider that is competent on and off-piste in a variety of conditions. This is comparable to confidence on all blue and most black diamond runs at the resort (including ungroomed terrain).
Excellent physical fitness is required. Skiers must be able to hike for many hours at a time while carrying a small pack.
