Stoked for winter. Getting things up and running.


advisory discussion

We're cleaning off the dust accumulated over the summer and working on getting the avalanche program up and running for this winter. A few of our current tasks include going over our gear to make sure it is in good working order, meeting with cooperators, and working on continuing education, training, and prepardness (especially in terms of avalanche knowledge, companion rescue, and first aid/emergency response). Once it starts to snow, the Forecasters and Observers will get out and start monitoring the snowpack.

There are numerous events for both education and entertainment populating the SAC Events page. Check back often as more events are added on a regular basis. We'd love to see you at one or more of these events.
