some info and fundraiser

The Glacier Country Avalanche Center (GCAC) is pleased to bring avalanche survivor and paralympic athlete Sam Kavanagh and a screening of the film “A Dozen More Turns”

The film and presentation will start at 7:00 PM on Friday, February 5th at the Glacier Discovery Square , 540 Nucleus Avenue in Columbia Falls . Tickets are $5 at the door and drinks will be available for a suggested donation. We encourage everyone to come out and support avalanche education and safety with this powerful presentation and film.

For more information on this event or Glacier Country Avalanche Center , go to or call (406) 387-5737.

the drinks are beer and wine.  good start for the friday of winter carnival.

thinking of winter carnival. if looking for other entertainment, head on over to the ice arena for the annual men's A hockey tourny.  it is always fast, fun and entertaining.  and again, beer.

 just a quick note that sfc hoar is evident all the way to the tops of the summits. sfc hoar growth needs just a bit of wind near the sfc for moisture deposition to be refreshed. Too much wind obviously blows it all away. Most likely, the next storm that rolls in with have enough wind to destroy the sfc. hoard at exposed locations before and during snowfall, but well protected locales such as below treeline may see this layer persist. We'll see....
