Join us at Balata

Please join us Friday, March 13, from 6-9 p.m. at Balata in Edwards for a fun evening of snow science, Colorado Avalanche Information Center forecasters, gourmet dinner and wine. Proceeds will support additional community education and funds to hire another much needed backcountry forecaster. Currently, the CAIC has seven seasonal backcountry forecasters who are responsible for forecasting for an area equivalent to seven Switzerlands. The CAIC offers free daily avalanche danger and weather forecasting across Colorado. They are also responsible for keeping our highways clear of avalanche danger with the use of explosives. All participants will be registered to win a one day avalanche class for six with a debrief at The Bully Ranch. Tickets must be purchased by March 5. For more information, visit or contact Kelli at 970-390-9145.
