Motorized AIARE Level 2
Motorized AIARE 2 is a three-day/24-hour course that provides backcountry riders an opportunity to advance their decision making skills in more complicated situations with respect to traveling in avalanche terrain - such as being the leader of group, riding in complex terrain, and developing a plan where resources are scarce.
This course builds on the backcountry decision making process introduced in AIARE 1 and adds to it the evaluation of critical hazard assessment factors with more focus on weather, snowpack, avalanche processes, and identify how these processes relate to observations and riding in avalanche terrain.
AIARE 1 + Avalanche Rescue (or equivalents) are a prerequisite for this course.
