Ways to Support AIARE

The backcountry is a different place today than it has ever been. Last year, we saw an unparalleled influx of new backcountry travelers, and we do not see this trend going awayBecause of this, AIARE is even more important, relevant, and ready to take on new challenges than ever before. Your generous donation will save lives and support AIARE to:

  • Improve, update, and develop new curriculum and training programs.
  • Expand online educational resources for all backcountry travelers.
  • Reduce avalanche injuries and fatalities by providing us the means to build awareness to a wider audience.
  • Support research projects on the decision making processes of backcountry travelers.
