Avalanche Rescue Course is a new component of the American Avalanche Associations progression of avalanche education. The fundamental goal of the course is to give participants the skills necessary to safely perform a companion or team rescue in the event of an incident.
The Avalanche Rescue Course revolves around 4 core curriculum areas: Rescue Principles, Equipment and Applications, the Companion Rescue Process, and Victim Basic Care. With the completion of this one-day course, participants should have a better skill set for understanding the hazards of avalanches, what is required to perform a search of one or more buried individuals, and what is required to rescue a victim once they are found.
While this course can be taken by itself it is not intended to replace the Avalanche Level 1 Course. Additionally, the Avalanche Rescue Course is a prerequisite for people looking to take the Avalanche Level 2 Course, Pro-1, and/or the ProSAR courses.
The California Ski Guides instructor staff is composed of a combination of certified instructors, ski patrollers, and professional backcountry ski and Splitboard guides. All of our staff members have real-world avalanche experience from years of guiding around the world. They will be your personal instructors in some of the most important hands-on learning that you could ever do.
