I am looking into getting my Avy 2 next month and can likely get into a class with Colorado Mountain School up in Estes Park.

Has anyone used these guys?
Have you done their Avy 2course?
What do you think about them?

Please let me know!

Pedro

I took Avy 2 through Aspen Expeditions.

Also a real value if you live Colorado Mountain College in-district is to take the AVY 2 through CMC, whereby their are still some openings.

Itinerary (four 10-hour days): Thursday & Friday: classroom/field sessions, Saturday & Sunday: full-day field sessions. Appropriate backcountry travel equipment MUST be secured BEFORE the start of the course on day 1. An equipment list will be emailed in advance within a week before the class starts. Additional fees paid at registration include: $40 materials fee (handed out at class, includes the required AIARE Level 2 Student Manual, AIARE Field Notebook, and access to AIARE membership) and $30 USDA Forest Service Fee.

I did my Level 2 at CMS and I can't say enough good things about their venue! It's an awesome course with top-notch instructors.
