Motorized AIARE Avalanche Rescue Course

The AIARE Motorized Avalanche Rescue Course is a one-day field course for new and experienced backcountry riders. This course covers critical and essential life-saving skills and companion rescue techniques. You’ll learn how to properly use your transceiver, shovel, avalanche probe, and other gear with focused skills training and realistic practice scenarios. New participants will learn the basics of companion rescue while returning participants expand their skill sets through advanced topics and complex scenario practice. This course is excellent for standalone learning, developing beyond the rescue skills in Level 1, and dialing in your skills and equipment with your riding group.

Participants must have:

  • snowmobile or snow bike (reliable and appropriate for mountain riding) 
  • avalanche rescue gear (digital avalanche transceiver, shovel, probe)
  • backpack (airbag pack optional)
  • appropriate riding gear, extra layers, and food for a full day on the snow
  • the ability to ride off-trail in varied terrain and deep snow, or single-track behind a leader in off-trail terrain.
  • the appropriate trail sticker or state registration for your machine (or required trail passes for the riding area)
  • transportation to and from classroom and field locations with your machine
