Welcome to the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center (GNFAC) web site. This site is brought to you by the Friends of the GNFAC, a non-profit supporting avalanche awareness and education through a partnership with the GNFAC.
Based in Bozeman, Montana, the GNFAC covers an area of approximately 6,000 mi2, including the Bridger, Gallatin, and Madison Ranges, the Lionhead area near West Yellowstone, and the mountains around Cooke City.
Some days the big lines will go, but other days they won't. Three skiers walk through the decision making process in Get Avalanche Smart - Episode 3: The Great One.
Dick Aspen hilariously stars in Get Avalanche Smart - Episode 2: Don't be like Dick. This is the second of four episodes promoting avalanche education by the Friends of the Avalanche Center.
The best $30 you’ll ever spend, guaranteed: Our Intro to Avalanches with Field Day. Two evenings of lectures plus a full day in the field digging pits and learning about rescue.
This is the first of 4 movies produced by the Friends of the Avalanche Center promoting Avalanche Education.
GNFAC partners with groups around the region to provide evening avalanche classes, plus full day and multi-day courses, including some weekend field days. All our class offerings, along with courses from other providers, are on our Education Calendar.
