Bozeman folks have the best of both worlds: easy access to the outdoors AND easy access to some of the best avalanche education tools in the country. Our Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center exists to keep us safe and the amount of education they supply is amazing.
The National Avalanche Foundation has set up an education fund in memory of Darren Johnson, the Yellowstone Club ski patroller killed in an avalanche on January 19, 2016. The purpose of this memorial fund is to financially help ski patrollers attend the biennial National Avalanche School. You can check out the details and make a donation here:
