Dear Friends of ASI,


WINTER IS COMING SOON!:
It snowed at Mt. Rose last week. Nice spirit lifter for a good season.

We are getting so excited for Winter and our Avalanche courses are already filling up! AIARE Avalanche Courses



WILDERNESS FIRST AID/CPR:
You don't need it til you need it! This is the perfect course to help prepare you for the inevitables that occur in the backcountry. It's 2 days during the "shoulder season" and taught by one of the best First Aid Instructors we've ever worked with, Bill Seline. You'll also get your CPR training and certification with it as well. You'll feel better being prepared if there is an emergency.

Wilderness First Aid/CPR

Also counts as a WFR Refresher

Wilderness First Responder/CPR
Nov 19-24, 2018 7 days



AIARE AVALANCHE EDUCATION:
The ASI AIARE Avalanche Level 1 has become the cornerstone of the winter program. Much more than just an avalanche course, the curriculum that now has evolved for AIAREover 30 years ties together many aspects of backcountry travel and related skills to help your well being in avalanche terrain.

These programs are taught by an elite group of highly experienced
Ski Mountaineering Guides. They are passionate about the snow and your learning of the snow craft. All the knowledge comes back to practical, "real time" application of when we are out there in the snow.



AIARE Avalanche Level 1 & Level 1 PLUS
Signup early, they all fill-up fast! December is an excellent time to get your education in. It doesn't take much snow to run a great course. Then, you're set for the rest of the season, when the free-riding really gets good.
