Beacon Bowl and Snow

We have had 5" of snow the last 36 hours. It is snowing moderately right now and the forecasters are predicting a few inches tonight. The skiing and riding is getting better all the time. I think this would be a great weekend to come on up and enjoy the fun.

Speaking of fun, Saturday is the Beacon Bowl. The event has something for everyone including avalanche awareness sessions, beacon clinics, and beacon competitions (both fun and serious). At the end of the day we throw a great party and fund raiser with all proceeds going to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. There will be a raffle, live auction and silent auction as well as beer and pizza. Prizes and auction items include Monarch Snowcat Skiing, New Belgium bike, Ski Logic and Salomon skis, tons of BCA gear, lift tickets to lots of Colorado mountains, Avalung, and lots more. Being a believer in pay to play, I think it is my duty to go to the fundraiser and spend some cash that goes to CAIC. I think that should be your duty too. Come on up, learn a few things, have some fun, get some new gear, and feel good about buying beer and pizza. See you there.
