The Bridger Teton Avalanche Center is the organization responsible for issuing avalanche forecasts for the Tetons and the mountains surrounding Jackson Hole. If you've ever skied or ridden around here - or ever plan to - you've benefitted from the professionals who analyze snowfall and snow safety every day during the season. The daily avalanche report is as important to people around here as that morning cup of coffee.
The BT Avalanche Center operates on limited funding from the National Forest Service but needs public donations to extend its mission of education, awareness, research, and snow control.
Jackson Hole has an incredible annual fundraising effort called Old Bill's Fun Run. OBFR collects donations for various nonprofits from thousands of participants and adds a match to help fund these organizations. Anyone from anywhere can contribute and designate their favorite organization. Even very small donations are extremely welcome.
