The Telluride Avalanche School offers several avalanche education opportunities throughout the winter season including: one 4-day avalanche course, two 3-day avalanche courses, one 2-day avalanche course, our free Monday Night Avalanche Awareness Forum Series and as well as our free Avalanche Beacon Rescue Clinics.

Our 4 and 3-day courses curricula adhere to American Avalanche Association (AAA) guidelines and curriculum from the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE) and all participants receive a Certificate of Completion for these courses. Field sessions make up at least 50% of course content and are conducted in real avalanche terrain.

All of our highly-skilled instructors/guides are avalanche forecasters, snow safety experts, professional ski patrollers and/or professional members of the AAA and/or AIARE who understand the importance of creating dynamic and interesting lessons.

Our Monday Night Avalanche Forums are designed to encourage avalanche safety and awareness and involve a variety of guest speakers. They are free and open to the public.
