We are excited to announce we’re launching a new website for the 2020-21 winter season! We hope the new layout is easier to use and will enable us to get you the information you need to be safe in avalanche terrain this winter. Please be patient as we work out the bugs in the new site.  If you see or experience issues on the site, email us with a description. Our plan is to issue forecasts on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this season.  

Check out this Introduction to Avalanches Class that will be taking place on January 14.  This is a virtual class hosted by our friends at the Sawtooth Avalanche Center. This is a great class to gain some basic knowledge or brush up even if you are an experienced backcountry traveler.

As always, your observations and sharing information on instabilities and incidents are very important to our operations. You can submit your observations on our Observations Page, it’s easy and only takes a few minutes.  We will continue to improve our submission form for observations over the next few weeks to make it even easier.

We rely on your support so reach out to the Friends of the PAC, or click Donate above, to help us provide you with the info you need to be safe in the mountains. Pray for snow!
