Jackson Hole Avalanche Center Could Use Your Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Shameless plug...

 

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.

 
If you would like to support the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center this year, you can target Friends of the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center with a donation to Old Bill’s.  
 
It's really easy, you can go to the Old Bill’s 2016 donation website at https://cfjh.iphiview.com/cfjh/DonorView/DonateNow/Results/tabid/461/dispatch/givingopportunities/Default.aspx#dispatch=GivingOpportunities   From there, select “Old Bill’s" in the Event box and then scroll down the organization list to “Friends of the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center”.
 
We've had overnight frost several of the last few days.  It snowed on Beartooth Pass a few days ago.  Winter is coming and we'll soon be skiing again.  If you can spare a few dollars to support this important organization, we would really appreciate it.
 
Thanks and sorry for the blatant begging.

Happy to help.  One of my favorite t-shirts is a JH patroller dog shirt, the one with heads on the front and tails on the back. :D
