By popular demand, we’ve created a one day, field-based Avalanche Refresher course in Lake Tahoe that updates the skills that skiers and riders have previously learned in an AIARE 1 course or equivalent avalanche education based course.

This course provides a review of Rec 1 material, industry updates, rescue skills and more. You can expect to go over terrain assessment, snowpack evaluation, rescue skills, decision making and planning a tour with our Tahoe ski guides.

Completion of an AIARE 1 course or equivalent.
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).
