In Avalanche Level 2, you’ll learn how to apply The AAI Backcountry Checklist, tour planning tools and assess hazard/exposure in complex terrain, new snow climates and/or areas where external avalanche observations and forecasts are not readily available. In this course, you’ll learn to manage uncertainty by identifying and managing gaps in information. We’ll describe and discuss weather, snowpack and avalanche processes, and identify how these processes relate to observations and travel within avalanche terrain. If your backcountry progression is taking you to huts or expeditions, or you’d like to be able to drill down past zone-level forecasts, Avalanche Level 2 is perfect for you.
