Avalanche Advisory
Advisory: Uintas Area Mountains Issued by Craig Gordon for Saturday - October 22, 2016 - 5:15am
special announcement

The annual Boondockers Premeier was an amazing success, raising nearly $14,000 for sled specific avalanche education, awareness, and outreach. We couldn't pull this off without the incredible support we get from all of you... so a HUGE shout out to everyone who attended Thursday nights gig. Of course, what makes this event more successful each year is Dan Gardiner and his ridiculously talented Boondockers crew. Many thanks to all of the Boondockers athletes for helping us spread the avalanche gospel. And finally, if it weren't for the great support of the Utah Snowmobile Association we'd all go hungry in the theater. Yep... once again Cal Taylor and the USA stepped up and donated $1000 worth of food... bringing a new and extremely generous meaning to "Dinner and a movie."

Huge thanks for the remakable support at this weeks Boondockers Premeire... where island style meets mountain style. Craig seen here with not one, but two new loaner sleds for the 2016-17 season. Polaris and Tri-City Performance generously loan these sleds so we can cover more terrain, issue more accurate forecasts, and ultimately save more lives. We are grateful to Mike Poulsen and his staff for putting this program together.
