The fundraising season for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center begins Sept. 30 at Bent Gate Mountaineering in Boulder.

During the winter, the avy center provides daily web forecasts with weather and avalanche conditions statewide.

Part of the center’s operations are funded via the state, but grassroots support is critical.

A $20 donation gets you admission to a movie, silent auction and fashion show, along with a few mini-clinics on avalanche awareness. Arapahoe Basin and Loveland ski areas will also be represented.

The proceeds will also support the Friends of Berthoud Pass and the Backcountry Snowsports Alliance. Call (303) 271-9382 for more information.
