AAI has been teaching avalanche courses since the winter of 1973/1974. Our curriculum has been evolving for over 35 years and is built on a foundation of snow science AND practical application.
Our courses are held in mountainous environments. Training in the Tetons, Wasatch, Bridgers, and Madison Range will set the students up well for travel in avalanche terrain around the world.
We hope to see you on a course!
