The Colorado Avalanche Information Center’s new nonprofit friends group needs your help.

For years, the avalanche center has scrambled with funding for its day-to-day operations. State funding covers work-related expenses to controlling avalanches near highways, but outreach for backcountry travelers relies in part on grassroots funding.

In the past few months, a group of supporters has rallied to create a nonprofit friends group dedicated to fundraising for the center.

The group recently launched a new website and is looking for help with planning this year’s big pre-season fundraiser.
