AIARE 1 with Northeast Mountaineering

This past December I took the AIARE Level 1 course with Northeast Mountaineering. I fell in love with backcountry skiing and wanted to be more knowledgable about it. It was an amazing weekend learning about snowpack, avalanche terrain and rescue in the White Mountains. During our course, we were able to see the run out from a huge avalanche in Tuckerman Ravine.  I finished the weekend with a better understanding of the dangers in the backcountry and how to make good decisions while out there. Thanks NEM, Dave and Benny!
