Learning Outcomes for REC2+ Course:
- Recognize avalanche terrain, develop a systematic method for avalanche risk assessment, and execute safe travel plans.
- Science of snow crystals, metamorphism, and slab avalanche fracture mechanics.
- Understand the impact of weather in the snowpack. Track precipitation, wind, and temperature critical thresholds driving stability.
- Reliable identification of slab and weak layer structures in snow pits. Characterize snowpack structure reactivity with basic stability tests.
The REC2+ is a comprehensive preparatory course for the next professional developmental step; the AAA PRO1.
