New AIARE Level 1 Course on Mount Rainier!
If you still haven’t signed up for an avalanche course, we’ve got the perfect new offering for you! Mountain Madness is thrilled to announce that we’ve confirmed our permits to run avalanche courses on Mount Rainier this winter.
The full AIARE-certified Avalanche Level 1 Course is scheduled for February 19 – 21. After classroom sessions in Ashford at the Nisqually Lodge, we’ll head out to the field for our hands-on snow studies on the terrain above Paradise: Mazama Ridge, Paradise Glacier, the Muir Snowfields, and the surrounding areas. With tons of touring and terrain options, cozy lodging in Ashford, and 3 full days of practicing snow safety skills, this is an ideal class for anybody traveling in the backcountry.
