SheJumps & JHOLI Level 1 Avalanche Courses

@ -

Alpenglow Mountain Festival

SheJumps & Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute are partnering to bring three Women’s-Only AIARE Avalanche courses to the Tetons! There will be two Level 1 courses and one Level 2 course this year!

LEVEL 1 COURSE DATES: December 20-22, 2019 January 24-26, 2020
LEVEL 1 COST: $399 (due at the time of registration)

LEVEL 2 COURSE DATE: February 27- March 1, 2020
LEVEL 2 COST: $499 (due at the time of registration)

REGISTRATION & QUESTIONS: Contact Mya at makins@shejumps.org for questions. To register, call Central Wyoming College at 307-733-7425. Registration is first-come, first-serve, with 12 spots available per course.

COURSE INFORMATION: Invest in your backcountry education this season with SheJumps and Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute. Participants will obtain their AIARE Level 1 or AIARE Level 2 certification through these courses and a solid grasp on traveling in avalanche terrain. Students will obtain an understanding of how to prepare for and carry out a backcountry trip, execute basic decision making while in the field and learn rescue techniques.

PREREQUISITES: Participants are required to have a full touring setup (no snowshoes) as well as necessary avalanche safety equipment (beacon, shovel, probe). Participants must be able to travel in avalanche terrain. Participants should also be comfortable transitioning their touring setup between uphill and downhill travel, and while we suggest practice with your gear, you don’t have to be an expert!

Ortovox has graciously donated backpacks, beacons, shovels, and probes for anyone who does not have their own gear and is looking to borrow equipment for the course! Contact Mya at makins@shejumps.org if you are interested!

Our courses with Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute over the years have been highly successful as they do a great job of instilling the necessary information while creating a space that is open to questions and learning among all involved—do not miss out this year!

We welcome all women and girls (transgender and cisgender) as well as non-binary people who identify with the women’s community.
