Description

SheJumps & Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute are partnering to bring two Women's-Only AIARE Avalanche Level 1 courses to the Tetons!

COURSE DATES:
December 8-10, 2017
January 3-5, 2018

COST: $395 (due at the time of registration) Scholarships are available!

COURSE INFORMATION & SCHOLARSHIPS:
Invest in your backcountry education this season with SheJumps and Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute. Participants will obtain their AIARE Level 1 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.

Furthermore, demonstrating their support of outdoor education and opportunities for women through SheJumps, Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute has generously donated two 50%-scholarships for each course. Scholarship applications are due November 20, and can be found here:https://goo.gl/forms/3p0g43z5MTIN2GbI3.

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!

REGISTRATION & QUESTIONS: Contact Betsy at betsy.manero@gmail.com to register. Registration is first-come, first-serve, with 12 spots available per course.

Our courses with Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute are 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!
