Community Support for the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center

Each year, 65 percent of the BTNF Avalanche Center’s funding comes from community donations. Your financial support helps provide the public with information about avalanche conditions. Our organization promotes fundraising initiatives that enable the professionals in the avalanche center to move forward. Over the last decade, Friends of the Bridger-Teton National For­est Avalanche Cen­ter has played a cru­cial role in sup­port­ing the Bridger-Teton National For­est Avalanche Cen­ter. Dur­ing that time, demand for the Center’s ser­vices greatly increased. Fund­ing from the Friends has supported:

  • Extend­ing the length of the fore­cast sea­son ear­lier and later
  • Cre­at­ing a new web-based Google Map dis­play of events.
  • Main­tain­ing and oper­at­ing remote auto­mated weather sta­tions.
  • Giv­ing pub­lic avalanche aware­ness pre­sen­ta­tions.
  • Edu­ca­tion oppor­tu­ni­ties for avalanche fore­cast­ers.
  • Pur­su­ing and obtain­ing fund­ing from grants and other sources.
