This course covers all the information in a standard AIARE Level 1 Course, and is located at the El Colorado Ski Resort in Chile for a classroom! Class sizes are small and you are able to apply your new knowledge immediately as well as being able to completely immerse yourself in the course curriculum.
For backcountry travelers, terrain assessment and decision making skills are a must. This Hut Based avalanche course provides knowledge that is essential to backcountry travel and safety, including a thorough look into the snowpack and evaluating stability. Our professional instructors instill the knowledge to help assess and manage risk.
How to get to El Colorado?
Denver/Houston/San Francisco/Los Angeles/New York/Miami/Dallas/ to Santiago-Chile
From Santiago-Chile folks can fly (Sky Airlines or Lan Airlines), take a bus, or rent a car to Temuco. I recommend arranging for Nico to take care of transportation from Temuco to Los Paraguas. It should be easy to coordinate to have the US folks transported to Malalcahuello so that they can ski Corralco Ski Resort and access their VERY extensive backcountry skiing terrain.
There is a wide variety of transportation options between Santiago and the El Colorado Ski Center and Farellones Parks that run every day. Most of them start from the Omnium Shopping Center, located at Av. Apoquindo 4900 in the commune of Las Condes.
