We will start issuing avalanche advisories around the first of November or whenevery it snows.† In the mean time, donít forget about a couple of upcoming events:
First, the employees of Black Diamond will host their 12th
annual fundraising dinner on Thursday, September 22nd at the Black
Diamond store.† It is always the best
party of the fall and each year several hundred people show up for a great
dinner, a silent auction, live music and raffles.† Itís always a great place to catch up with
all your winter friends after a long summer.†
for more information.
Second, the annual backcountry gear swap will occur again at REI.† The date has not been set yet, but it usually happens in the first week of November.
In the mean time, you can monitor the mountain conditions by looking at the automated weather stations on the Internet.† Luckily, Alta will leave Collins study plot operating year round.†
