special announcement

THANK YOU to everyone who attended the 24th Annual Utah Avalanche Center Fundraising Party hosted by Black Diamond with beverages provided by Uinta Brewing. It was great fun and our best one yet with record setting money raised. We couldn't operate the Utah Avalanche Center without support from a long list of organizations and individuals.

We have several events approaching quickly:

10th Annual Utah Snow and Avalanche Workshop

Snowbird, Saturday November 4th at 10 a.m.

Join us for the 10th annual USAW, where Utah’s avalanche community will team up with snow professionals from around the west to share avalanche knowledge. Regional avalanche workshops are the most time and cost effective way to build and refresh advanced avalanche skills available. This is your chance to brush up your skills, learn from from avalanche experts, and brush up your skills before the start of the season.

Preregistration closes on Thursday, November 2nd at noon. After that, you can get tickets for $45 at the door. Lunch, coffee/beverage service, and post workshop happy hour is included. To see the full agenda and to register, go HERE.

Boondockers 14

Salt Lake City, Saturday, October 21 at 6 p.m.

Fall is here finally and many peaks were dusted with snow on September 15th and more fell the night of the 21st. The photo below from an Alta webcam in Little Cottonwood Canyon was taken the morning of Sept 22nd.

We get excited seeing early season snow, but we hope it melts away. Early season snow always becomes weak and faceted, and it can produce avalanches months later that break at the ground.
