Avalanche Training

NORTH CONWAY, NH

In 2006, we accepted our responsibility to our students and the winter adventure community as a whole by offering nationally recognized American Institute Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE) courses. AIARE is a nationally recognized curriculum for avalanche education in the U.S., so you know you can trust the information and techniques we teach in the courses below. We are proud to be the largest provider of avalanche training in the East with an AIARE 2 course leader and four AIARE 1 course instructors on staff.

The following Avalanche Training courses are offered at our North Conway Climbing School. Groups meet at the Highland Center in Crawford Notch at 8:30am on the first day. Your instructor will then inform you about meeting times and locations for the remainder of the course.
