We love the weather reports and we need the avalanche forecasts, but how can we make sure NWAC has the support to keep them coming? Vertfest. Come drink beer and help NWAC continue forecasting.
Outdoor Research, The Summit at Snoqualmie, Pro Guiding Service, and Osprey Packs are excited to present the fourth Annual Vertfest Randonee Rally. The event is to be hosted at Alpental on Saturday, March 6; all proceeds from the day will benefit the Friends of the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center. Vertfest is the Northwest’s mid-winter celebration of backcountry culture and a chance to test your stamina in a fun uphill /downhill ski race. The beer will be flowing after racers cross the finish line, so come join in the festivities and catch up with your friends even if you don’t tape on a bib number. There will also be a rescue companion clinic to build your snow-safety know-how. While there is only one Vertfest this year, mark your calendars! It’s going to be a good one! If you live in the Northwest you have probably utilized information provided by NWAC, so come and show some support.
