AIARE Avalanche Education

Bluebird Backcountry is the only ski area in the world designed for backcountry education. We are one of the nation’s leading American Institute for Avalanche Research & Education (AIARE) providers, and our entire avalanche education team has been thoroughly trained and certified. 

At Bluebird, you’re surrounded by a community that’s excited to learn. Our classroom in northern Colorado includes thousands of acres of welcoming ski and splitboard terrain — from rolling aspens to fun bowls — that make for a great learning experience outside. And since Bluebird is also a backcountry ski area, you get the comforts of warm food, bathrooms, on-site rentals, fireside hangouts, and the added safety of having ski patrol just around the corner.
