Attention snow nerds, wanna be snow nerds, people that like to play in the snow, and people that like to play with people that like to play in the snow, Arapahoe Basin will be hosting the 12th Annual Beacon Bowl and Avalanche Awareness Day Saturday, February 8, 2014. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC). The CAIC does an extraordinary job, on a limited budget, of forecasting conditions for Colorado skiers and riders. It is our hope that the Beacon Bowl will raise some money to help them carry out their critical mission. Last season's event raised over $10,000 for the Center.
The day includes all kind of fun events. The Beacon Bowl competition gives participants a chance to test their beacon skills against each other in a fun spirited and supportive contest. Additionally, there will be beacon clinics, avalanche dog demonstrations, a great silent and live auction (hosted by Tony C), cheap beer and pizza, and a wicked fun apres ski party. It is probably the funnest gathering of "Snow Types" since the November CAIC Benefit Bash in Breck. Come join the fun.
