Motorized Level 1 is a 3 day / 24 hour avalanche course specifically designed for snowmobilers and snow bikers. This course emphasizes riding time and teaches the fundamental aspects involved in desicison making and the risk management process with respect to backcountry snowmobiling and snow biking in avalanche terrain. Topics covered include preparation, planning, and execution of a backcountry ride, avalanche terrain identification, hazard mitigation, and safe travel techniques; as well as basic weather and snowpack analysis and avalanche resuce techniques. After short classroom sessions, we get out in the field and ride each day of the course to apply the topics. This course is right for any snowmobiler or snow biker that wants to leave the trail.
Motorized AIARE Avalanche Rescue is a 1 day / 8 hour field course that teaches you the essential life saving skills and techniques of companion rescue. Learn how to properly use your transceiver, shovel, avalanche probe, and other gear. This course is great for any experience level and is intended to be retaken on a regular basis in order to keep up to date on the best practices in rescue techniques and gear. New participants will learn the basics of - and practice - companion rescue, while return participants can expand their skill set with advanced topics and complex realistic scenario practice. This course expands on the basic rescue skills in a Level 1 and is a great one to take every season with your riding group to get dialed on your technique and rescue gear as a team.
