11/14/23-The Friends are excited for winter, and we hope you are getting excited too!  We have lots of new things happening this winter and are hoping to see you out at some of our upcoming events. Volunteers from FPAC recently installed a new weather station on the Shaw Twins Ridgeline, it will be live later this winter. We are also upgrading our 25-year-old Granite Weather station with some new equipment!  Current weather data will be available from both of these stations this winter on our website. This equipment was funded by grants from the Avalanche Alliance from their annual sweepstakes, and the Idaho State Snowmobile Association through snowmobile registration fees.  We will also be installing a new beacon park at the Francis Wallace Snowmobile Lot.   Check back soon for a full list of events and classes coming up this winter.  The weather does not look overly promising for legitimate snow anytime soon so keep doing your snow dances and join us in later this month for another FPAC membership night at one of our local taphouses.  Also, check out our list of classes and the links to some of the local class providers…get the knowledge!
