AIARE Pro 2 with Ruby Mountain Heliskiing


AIARE is excited to offer the Pro 2 Course in the Ruby Mountains, in conjunction with Ruby Mountain Heliskiing. This is an expanded, premium version of the AIARE Pro 2 course. Included in the price of your course, you will find this Pro 2 has features such as a smaller group size, 3 nights in a yurt, and motorized transportation to the yurt. The most significant value, though, comes from the close contact with the day to day operation of a professional mechanized guide service.

This course offers opportunities not found in standard Pro 2 courses. The course includes three nights in a yurt, as well as snowcat (or snowmobile) transport to the yurt for you and your gear.  This course operates at an enhanced student to instructor ratio providing you with more opportunities for personal attention from your instructors. The course takes place in a motorized guiding operation (heli/snowcat).
Attending this expanded Pro 2 course will provide you with the opportunity to monitor a working guide service and experience their guide meetings, forecasts, communications, and briefings during your course. It is an opportunity to see how this operation applies material taught in the course.
