AIARE Avalanche Rescue 

The 2022/ 2023 Season is live!

Climbers of Color has partnered with Mountain Bureau to offer an AIARE Rescue Course! 


AIARE Avalanche Rescue is a one-day stand-alone course that is intended to be retaken regularly to keep abreast of best practices in rescue techniques and gear. New participants will learn the basics of companion rescue while returning participants will expand their skill set with advanced topics and realistic scenario practice to help improve their skills.

Each participant will have the opportunity to receive professional coaching on their rescue skills and will receive a rescue card acknowledging the completion date (certification).

AIARE Avalanche Rescue is a prerequisite for the AIARE 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.

NOTE: A minimum of 6 participants is required to operate this course.
