This Avalanche Level 1 Hybrid Course is split up over online coursework, one 2 hour evening video conference, and two full days of training in the field. We teach a complete program of curriculum established and developed by the American Avalanche Institute (AAI). You can expect to develop a solid foundation of how to prepare for and carry out a backcountry trip, understanding basic decision making while in the field, and avalanche rescue techniques required to locate and dig up a buried person. This course provides essential training for anyone traveling in or near avalanche terrain: snowboarders, ski tourers, snowmobilers, mountaineers, snowshoers, everyone! For aspiring professionals, this course fulfills a prerequisite for the AAI Pro 1 course down the line.
