Our Mission: Friends of the Chugach National Forest Avalanche Information Center (F-CNFAIC) is dedicated to enhancing avalanche awareness in Southcentral Alaska through information, outreach and partnerships.

F-CNFAIC • PO Box 242482 • Anchorage, AK 99524-2482
A 501(c)(3) Non profit organization since 2003 • Federal Tax ID: 68-0578518

Over the years, our sponsors have generously donated to our organization. This financial support has allowed us to accomplish many of our goals, including:

  • A permanent position status for the CNFAIC Director. Permanent status means our director now has health insurance and benefits and ensures that the Chugach Avalanche Center will continue to attract some the best avalanche forecasters in the nation.
  • Enhanced observations on our website. We host an observations platform that displays public and professional observations throughout the Southcentral area.
  • Public outreach and education events. Every season, our forecasters host numerous avalanche education workshops that reach hundreds of people.
  • Weather station maintenance and upkeep.

To continue this important work for the 2018-19 season, we depend on contributors like you in order to accomplish our mission. Sponsorships are renewable annually: Platinum ($5,000+), Gold ($1000-$4,999), Silver ($500-$999), or Bronze ($250-$499).

Avalanche forecasts during the week see an average of 3,000 visits per day. Forecasts Friday through Sunday see an average of 7,000 visits per day.

Platinum level sponsors have their logo embedded in the forecast every day of the week. Gold level sponsors have their logo embedded in the forecasts Thursday through Sunday. Silver level sponsors have their logo embedded in the Monday through Wednesday forecasts. Bronze level sponsor logos will be visible in the side bar rotation of sponsor images. All sponsors are listed on our sponsorship page, highlighted at our events and displayed in our annual report.

Sponsorship runs from October 1 through September 30 each year. Please feel free to contact us via email ( if you have any questions regarding sponsorship of the Friends group.
