The AIARE Level 2 is three full days of instruction that provides backcountry travelers an opportunity to advance their decision making skills with more complicated situations where they may be a leader within a small travel group, potentially traveling in more complicated terrain, and/or developing a travel plan where online resources are scarce and decisions need to be made from field observations.
The AIARE 2 builds on the introductory avalanche hazard management model introduced in the 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.
