Donate To Rebuild The UAC Website!


Help us raise $75,000.

Why It Matters:

  • Your safety matters! The Utah Avalanche Center's website is your ultimate resource for staying safe in the backcountry.
  • Every donation supports rebuilding our website, ensuring access to critical tools and knowledge.
  • The current website platform will be losing support, so we must rebuild it to continue offering all of our available resources online. 
  • This will be the UAC's largest website project, requiring a full recoding of our website. The project will take close to 18 months with a cost of almost $90,000
