Thank You! As a nonprofit organization, we rely on a variety of funding sources to operate. These include grants, fundraising events, classes, federal, state, and county support, and most importantly, donations from businesses and individuals (You!). Our recent spring campaign was nothing short of amazing. You helped us raise over $138,000 to fund avalanche forecasting, awareness, and education programming. Check out our thank you video:
The success of the Spring Campaign allows us to meet the needs of the rapidly growing Utah backcountry community. Despite the below-average snowfall this year, our education and awareness programs reached a record number of users and, as the population in Utah continues to grow, we expect no slow down in the demand for avalanche information. We are busy planning for next winter with more education opportunities and trailhead awareness events and we’ll be ready to go with more in-person activities when state health officials give the green light.
It may be a cliche, but we really couldn’t do what we do without your support! Thank you for supporting our mission and caring that everyone comes home safely at the end of the day.
