PNW Fun Raiser

If you’re a Pacific Northwest backcountry skier, you probably rely quite a bit on the weather and avalanche forecasts of the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center (NWAC) or have heard about the education outreach of the Alpine Safety Awareness Program. Well this weekend offers a great chance to come out and show your appreciation for the fine folks at NWAC and ASAP and all the services that they offer, at their Fun Raiser this Saturday in Bellingham, WA.

What: ASAP & NWAC Fun Raiser
Where: Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro, Bellingham WA
When: Saturday, October 25 from 5:30 to 10:00pm
How Much: $10/person or $30/family (all-ages event)
Why: All money raised helps cover the insurance for ASAP to offer their youth and adult avalanche and safety awareness programs with NWAC.

The Goods: All-you-can-eat fish tacos, ASAP/NWAC Ale, music by Bentgrass, and lots of backcountry skiing raffle/auction items.

Karhu is proud to support NWAC and ASAP in their fundraising efforts this season. Come on out for a good cause, and you’ll have a chance to win some new Karhu skis. If you can’t make it to Saturday’s event in Bellingham, mark your calendar for the Northwest Snow and Avalanche Summit in Seattle on November 8th. More info to follow soon…
