AIARE Level 2 Avalanche Course 

Located in beautiful Lakeside Montana, The Mountain Guides Montana offers avalanche courses and skills clinics to help you begin and refine your avalanche safety and knowledge and help you become a safer, more competent back country adventurer. Instructors Kenny Gasch and Susan Purvis are both instructors for the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE).  In our AIARE courses we’ve taken it to the next level by providing students with an ideal learning environment for avalanche education with a one-of-a-kind venue. On our AIARE 1 courses, we have partnered with Blacktail Ski Area for the field sessions.

Our AIARE Level 2 Courses are designed for people looking to build a foundation for safe Backcountry travel. This comprehensive 3-day course focuses on hazard evaluation, decision-making and companion rescue in avalanche terrain. These courses include proper instruction for basic safety and protocols for safe backcountry travel. Over the 3-days you will learn the skills and tools needed to navigate the winter mountains and evaluate the snowpack when traveling through avalanche terrain.
