I am still hoping to take some friends with me this season to get educated on backcountry travel. Hope people can continue to donate, even $5-10 helps, it adds up quickly. Thanks everyone that has donated so far!!!!!

Thanks everyone for the donations so far. I hope I can get at least a few others in this class with me. It would be great to have some education on the slopes when we go out of the gates or go touring in the back country. I wont go in avalanche terrain without the course.

I am a 14 year old living in the mountains. I am also a Big Mountain Competitor and ride sidecountry with my friends a lot(age 14-55).  My goal with this page is to be able to afford to pay for my level 1 Avalanche certification course and pay for 9 of my friends to take the course also so we can all be as safe as possible.  I have my basics(beacon, probe, shovel) and if I can raise half of this amount my parents will by me an ABS or BCA pack too. Knowledge will also be my best tool to survive so I really need to get better educated on travel in the backcountry/avalanches and so do all of my friends.  My small community cant lose any more people to dangers that could have been prevented.
