The National Avalanche Foundation—a 501(c)(3) organization—was formed in 1982 to ensure the successful continuation of the National Avalanche School (NAS). The NAS is recognized as one of today’s leading US professional avalanche education & training programs with roots that trace back to the 1950’s United States Snow and Avalanche School held in Alta, Utah.
The Foundation’s #1 goal is to guarantee the existence of this premier school well into the future and it is seeking partners to provide financial support that will enable it to do so. Without the NAS, US avalanche programs lose the consistent, professional training and the information sharing it provides.
• Escalating program costs Increased travel, hotel, conference facility expenses, and insurance costs. • Challenging weather A number of ski areas have reduced their training budgets as a result of seasonal weather events. • Increased competition from other course providers Less expensive, less professional training programs are being substituted.
The Foundation is seeking $20,000/annually through grants, sponsorships, and donations to support its efforts. There are 2 ways you can help: a donation or a sponsorship of the classroom session.
Individuals or companies can make a general donation The School. These funds will go directly towards program production costs which inturn will help keep registration fees affordable.
Corporations and other organizations can support a specif day or event during the NAS Classroom Session. Sponsorships include a variety of benefits including complimentary trade show exhibit space, an opportunity to address the student body, recognition as a sponsor and on-site signage.
