Hello Friends of Burks,

Our community has lost a gem of a human recently. Nick Burks was an avalanche forecaster and educator, a backcountry ski guide, a Mt. Hood Meadows ski patroller for the better part of two decades, and, more importantly, an asset to our community and an incredible friend.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will support donations to the Wallowa Avalanche Center and the Responder Alliance in Nick’s name.

If you have photos you’d like to add to a slideshow to play at Nick’s memorial, please upload them to this Google Photo Album.

If you would like to contribute to a Spotify playlist with some of Nick’s favorite songs, please add them to this Google Sheet.

On behalf of Nick’s mountain community, thank you for considering and for helping to honor our dear friend.
