On behalf of the 2013 Northern Rockies Avalanche Safety Workshop Steering Committee, we are excited to announce that we are hosting our third annual Northern Rockies Avalanche Safety Workshop (NRASW 2013). The venue for NRASW 2013 will be the Grouse Mountain Lodge in Whitefish, Montana and the date is Saturday, OCTOBER 12th- mark your calendars!
The Friends of the Northwest Avalanche Center (FOAC) is looking to hire four Professional Observers to provide backcountry observations throughout the NWAC service area to the NWAC forecast team. The Professional Observer’s Network will provide timely and relevant professional-level observations to the NWAC team, thus reducing the data gaps in NWAC forecast areas. All observations will be focused outside of ski area boundaries in unmitigated terrain.
