The AIARE 2 is a three-day course for those who have taken AIARE 1 and Avalanche Rescue and have had at least a year of backcountry travel experience between courses. The AIARE 2 provides backcountry leaders the opportunity to advance their avalanche knowledge and decision-making skills by applying their skills to new terrain and situations. The AIARE 2 builds on the introductory avalanche hazard management model introduced in AIARE 1 and adds to it the evaluation of critical hazard assessment factors. Students will describe and discuss weather, snowpack and avalanche processes, and identify how these processes relate to observations and travel within avalanche terrain.

It is imperative that participants put in the prerequisite time so they are prepared for the two field sessions.
