Level 1 AIARE Avalanche course with Mountain Madness

Update: Thank you for coming out everyone! Have fun and safe touring season!

By Garrett Greene, Seattle, WA: evo is excited to announce our partnership with Mountain Madness to offer you Level 1 AIARE Avalanche Course opportunities.

These courses are perfect for all anyone who spends time in the snow, whether you are a skier, snowboarder, snowshoer, snowmobiler, or mountaineer. In this 24 hour class, you’ll learn how to recognize avalanche terrain, learn a framework for making decisions in avalanche terrain, and learn how to apply effective companion rescue.

For this course, you’ll need to have some experience (even just a little) and be comfortable skiing or boarding off trail or in deep snow.

You’ll also need to bring one of the following: ski touring equipment, a “splitboard” snowboard, or snowshoes to travel on during the course. For a full list of required equipment, check out the Mountain Madness list here.
