South Lake Tahoe Winter Program Expansion

aiare course in lake tahoe taught by professional mountain guides

Beginning in the ‘22/’23 season, Alpenglow Expeditions will be offering all AIARE avalanche education courses as well as our Backcountry series in our regular North Lake Tahoe locations as well as new locations in South Lake Tahoe! Here at Alpenglow, we believe it’s best to learn the avalanche safety skills necessary to travel into the backcountry in the same terrain you plan to explore. As such, we’re proud to provide the opportunity for everyone in the area to learn avalanche safety in familiar terrain. 

With winter approaching fast, taking an AIARE course is the best way to ensure your safety as you prepare to enter the vast backcountry terrain that Lake Tahoe has to offer. Whether you’re at the beginner, intermediate, or advanced level, Alpenglow offers a multitude of AIARE courses to suit any experience level. 

Why take an AIARE course with Alpenglow? Aside from offering multiple locations for avalanche education, our guides are among the most experienced skiers, riders, and instructors in the industry. As the only AMGA-accredited business in Northern California, we adhere to a set of professional standards and require annual training for our guides to ensure that they are up to date on industry best practices. Additionally, all Alpenglow instructors are either AMGA-certified Ski Guides or are well on their way to attaining certification. This certification requires extensive coursework, training, and field exper

ience with a high degree of familiarity across various types of snow and avalanche terrain. Taking an AIARE course through an AMGA-accredited business guarantees that students receive the highest level of professional education available in the worldwide ski and ride industry. 

Expanding the reach of our certified guides to cover both North and South Lake Tahoe provides an exciting opportunity both for our instructors and our students. Our guides live and work throughout the Lake Tahoe region and are 

extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the local terrain and beyond. With expeditions offered from here in Tahoe to the Andes and the Himalaya, we’re looking forward to bringing our wealth of expertise to multiple locations here in our own backyard.
