SheJumps AIARE Level 1 Course – Town Based in Silverton, CO January 19th-21st, 2024
We are so excited to partner with an amazing group whose focus is to uplift and promote the women’s outdoor community. The She Jumps AIARE Level 1 avalanche course is designed to give you a full introduction to backcountry travel. When you take your level one with San Juan Expeditions you will get hands-on experience analyzing the avalanche hazard and using your observations to make decisions in the field. We are committed to providing both tools for understanding the avalanche problem and the terrain management skills you can only get from observing an experienced guide. You will be lead by two female identifying professional guides. 10% of your registration goes towards SheJumps mission to getting more girls & women in the outdoors.
San Juan Expeditions Women’s Hut Based AIARE Level 2 + Leadership Development– Addie S Hut, Red Mtn Pass
WE ADDED AN ADDITIONAL DATE! Our February 8th-11th course is now full, but we have opened up an additional option for folks looking to be taken off the waitlist. We now have March 3rd-7th open for registration! If you would like to be added to the waitlist for the February course, please email us at [email protected].
The Women’s AIARE Level 2 builds on the introductory avalanche hazard management model introduced in the AIARE 1 and adds to the evaluation of critical hazard assessment factors. You will learn how to describe and discuss the weather, snowpack, and avalanche processes, and identify how these processes relate to observations and travel within avalanche terrain.
For this years course, we have teamed up with two amazing women, Dani Reyes-Acosta- Equanimity Outdoors Instructor, and Lauren Glass, LPCC- Mental Health Therapist, to offer a high quality course including dynamic leadership building activities & high end mental health practices focused around the backcountry.
This course consists of 4 days, 3 nights at the Addie S Hut located on Red Mtn Pass. If you would like Breakfast and Dinners included, please purchase our “Food Package” as an add on at checkout.
