Bottom Line: There is snow in the mountains and it’s time to think about avalanches. Accidents are not uncommon with early season snow and have injured skiers, climbers and hunters. Avoid steep slopes with thick drifts of snow. Travel one at a time in avalanche terrain. Carry a beacon, shovel and probe.

The Last Word

Unfortunately, the Friends of the Avalanche Center are again unable to host an in-person Powder Blast this year due to covid. In place of their biggest fund-raiser, the Friends of GNFAC launched an online GoFundMe campaign. Please consider a donation, and we look forward to having an in-person event again in the future.
