Local company White Room Adventures has teamed up with Paragon Guides to offer a subsidized AIARE (American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education) avi training level one. They have also lined up some local businesses who are providing scholarship money to further defray costs for the class. Furthermore, Vail Valley non-profit, the Chris Anthony Youth Initiative, is offering a full scholarship to local youth (kids under 18 must be accompanied by a paying guardian due to insurance regulations). A spot in the class will also be auctioned off at the Climb to Glory movie screening at VILAR tomorrow night (1/30).

To apply for the local scholarship, applicants can send a 250 word essay to: trips@paragonguides.com
