Colorado has one of the most dangerous snowpacks in North America and typically accounts for one third of all avalanche fatalities in the United States. The purpose of the CAIC is to minimize the economic and human impact of snow avalanches on the recreation, tourism, and commerce industries. They succeed in achieving their purpose through a dual mission of forecasting and public education. As more and more people venture into the backcountry, it is imperative that we continue to have this resource available. The CAIC provides valuable information for both recreational users and professionals venturing into the backcountry. The center operates on a limited budget and needs your support in order to continue this important work.
The Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) is a non‐profit 501(c)3 organization created to support the CAIC, while contributing to avalanche awareness and education throughout the State of Colorado. They achieve this mission through donations, grants, and fundraising events.
If you think avalanche forecasting, education, and awareness is important in Colorado, then this party is for you. A $20 donation at the door includes one door prize ticket, three beer tickets, dinner and
entertainment from Rooster Rocket.
