The CNFAIC has wrapped up operations and will no longer be posting conditions updates. Thank you to everyone for tuning in!! It was an interestingly chilly winter with many cold outflow wind events and a snowpack which struggled to stay near 50% of normal. Please see more in our Annual Report, which can be found HERE.
Although the forecast season has finished, the avalanche season has not – please see HERE for some SPRINGTIME AVALANCHE TIPS!!
We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all the folks who have taken the time to send in observations over the season. Your reports are integral in providing the highest quality information.
Additionally, THANK YOU to all of you who have supported the CNFAIC through donations, memberships and a variety of other means. This is the foundation we continue to build upon – we would not be here without you!
We would also like to thank our non-profit arm, the Friends of the CNFAIC. Half of our operating budget comes directly from you through the ‘Friends’ organization. This amazing and selfless group has a tireless passion for keeping us safe in the backcountry. Their fundraising efforts allow the Avalanche Center to be a reality – literally. And of course, we would not be here without the support of the Forest Service and the wonderful Glacier Ranger District.
Last but far from least, we would like to thank our professional partners for sharing their insights, information and wisdom, which greatly improve our forecasts:
