AIARE Avalanche Rescue Course

Keep your certifications current and your skills up to date

AIARE Avalanche Res­cue is a one-day stand alone course that is intend­ed to be retak­en on a reg­u­lar basis to main­tain best practices/​skills in res­cue tech­niques and devel­op­ments in equip­ment. New par­tic­i­pants will learn the basics of com­pan­ion res­cue and advanced sce­nario prac­tice to help improve their skills. Each par­tic­i­pant will have an assess­ment of their res­cue skills and will receive a res­cue card acknowl­edg­ing com­ple­tion. And when you are ready to ramp up your skills and knowl­edge this course pro­vides a sol­id foun­da­tion for the AIRE Rec 1 course.

AIARE Avalanche Res­cue is a pre­req­ui­site for the AIARE Rec 2 and Pro 1 cours­es. AIARE rec­om­mends that all back­coun­try trav­el­ers keep their skills cur­rent by tak­ing an Avalanche Res­cue Course and receiv­ing a res­cue card at least every oth­er year.

Flight Information

For sched­uled cours­es and climbs, you should fly into Seat­tle-Taco­ma Inter­na­tion­al Air­port (SeaT­ac). You are respon­si­ble for your trans­porta­tion to down­town Seat­tle. You will meet as a group with your guide(s) ear­ly morn­ing on Day 1 for an ori­en­ta­tion meet­ing and equip­ment check.

Note on Itin­er­ary: Although we do our very best to fol­low the sched­ule list­ed, the very nature of climb­ing in an alpine envi­ron­ment requires flex­i­bil­i­ty. This itin­er­ary is sub­ject to change due to inclement weath­er, unsafe route con­di­tions, and oth­er rea­sons beyond our control.
