2020 - 2021 Winter Courses Update: Non-yurt based AIARE Classes

Due to COVID-19, we do not feel that it is safe to host our yurt-based avalanche courses with a bunch of new ski-friends confined to the close-quarters of a yurt. That being said, we do think that providing avalanche classes this winter is extremely important for our backcountry community. Therefore, we have restructured our courses to be as safe as possible during this pandemic while also still providing the same excellent AIARE Level 1 and 2 curriculum and instruction our students love.

Hopefully next season we can get back to those Yurt based courses and scrumptious catered dinners. Additionally, we are fully booked this season on arranging private avalanche courses, but email us about discussing options for the winter 2021/2022 season if you have a crew of 4+ that is interested in a private avalanche course! info@montanabackcountryyurts.com
