SlideWright Supports CAIC to Help Colorado Avalanche Forecasting

CAIC, the Colorado Avalanche Information Center is funded by donations and is an important avalanche forecasting resource for backcountry skiers and snowboarders, along with other snow season backcountry users.

The purpose of the CAIC is to minimize the economic and human impact of snow avalanches on recreation, tourism, commerce, industry and the citizens of Colorado. Since 1950 avalanches have killed more people in Colorado than any other natural hazard, and in the United States, Colorado accounts for one-third of all avalanche deaths.

The 5th Annual Friends of CAIC Benefit Bash is Saturday, November 10th, 2011 from 5 to 10pm at the Breckenridge Riverwalk Center and SlideWright is among a long list of sponsors. For another season we have provided support worth of avalanche tools, waxing, base repair, edge tuning and binding insert tools and supplies that are available for bidding during the silent auction. If you cannot make it to the Benefit Bash, you can donate directly to help support this valuable resource for all of our sakes.

The Friends of CAIC are proud to announce the 5th Annual CAIC Benefit Bash! This year is shaping up to be the best party we have thrown yet. Last year was a blast and sold out. We hosted 1500 people and raised just over $72,000 for the CAIC.

This year we expect much of the same; A sell out crowd, a kick ass band, tons of gear, a massive silent auction, a plethora of food, great New Belgium beer, and a massive effort to raise $80k to go toward avalanche forecasting and education in Colorado!

The Details:
When: November 10, 2012

Time: 5pm-10pm and then of course an after party with some dance lessons

Where: The Breckenridge Riverwalk Center

Tickets are available HERE for $30.

So be safe out there and do not travel in the backcountry without good avalanche and snow information, combined with snow safety skills, avalanche safety gear and good decision making.
