Custom AIARE Avalanche Courses

Custom, private AIARE avalanche courses, exclusively for you, your partners, and/or your friends

You can now have a private AIARE avalanche course; AIARE 1, AIARE 2, or Avalanche Rescue

There are many options, from a standard three-day format for AIARE 1 or AIARE 2, or combining an Avalanche Rescue Class with AIARE 1 or 2 for a four-day program.  It’s also possible to cover the indoor material in the San Francisco Bay area or Sacramento, then spend two days in the field. Contact us below to discuss your options for your class.

We like to target a maximum class size of 6 students, but private classes can have from 1 to 12 students. In some cases, larger classes can be arranged as well.

Our field location is Lassen National Park, 3 1/2 hours from San Francisco, with amazing ski terrain, and without the crowds or traffic of Tahoe. Our permit zone is the entire Lassen National Park. On our courses we focus on terrain easily accessible from the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center. We have roughly 10,000 acres or 16 square miles of great ski terrain to choose from!

We create an immersive experience by providing accommodations in our house in Mineral, just outside of Lassen National Park. You’ll be staying with your instructor, providing time to have your questions answered after normal class hours. (More information about all of our AIARE 1, AIARE 2 and Avalanche Rescue Classes.)
