AIARE Avalanche Classes in Lassen National Park

You’ll get more from your AIARE avalanche course with the Outdoor Adventure Club than anywhere else.

Small class sizes. Personalized instruction from passionate instructors. Unparalleled access to your instructor after hours.

All AIARE avalanche classes start with the same curriculum, but your learning experience will vary with the course provider and instructor for your class. The benefits of taking your AIARE avalanche class with the Outdoor Adventure Club are easy to see, if you take a look.

Do you want small class sizes? Personal attention from your instructor? Do you want practical, hands-on field days?  Do you want an option that doesn’t require taking a day off of work? Do you want a class emphasizing trip planning and route finding, two skills that you’ll need when you are applying your knowledge on your backcountry ski trips?

You’ll receive an AIARE level one certificate at the end of any AIARE course, but you’ll get a better education when you choose the Outdoor Adventure Club for your AIARE avalanche course.

You’ll be in a class with fewer students. Our classes typically have 6 students. Our biggest classes have a maximum of 12 students.  You won’t get lost in the crowd  in our avalanche classes. Your questions will be answered. You’ll be able to get clarifications on topics you don’t understand. Your instructor will be able to focus on your needs and your questions.

You’ll receive personal attention, and unparalleled contact with your instructor during the course. You have the option of staying with your instructor in our house during your course. You can use dinner time in the house to discuss topics that you thought were confusing. You can exchange ideas with the other students in the class, as well. You’ll come away from the class learning, not just being taught.
