More Observations and More Rewards!!!

Congratulations to David Steele who won $50 to his favorite local outdoor retailer for submitting observations to us during the month of February. We will do this fantastic rewards program for month of March as well. All observations for March begin a new contest!

If you happen to be out in the backcountry, we need your observations. The Friends of the Flathead Avalanche Center are offering a $50 gift certificate to a local outdoor retailer (motorized or non-motorized outdoor retailer of your choice) as a reward for submitting observations:

Here is the deal:

1. Submit an observation during the month of February and you will be entered into a drawing to receive a gift certificate. 

2. You observation must be of sufficient quality. This means you must include:

  • a representative photograph of the snowpack, avalanche, or weather conditions.
  • a detailed description of the snowpack (yes, it can be the snow surface quality) or avalanche conditions that you observed. 
  • current weather conditions while you were out
  • specific description of your location (specific enough so we know the general area, but not enough if you don't want to give up your secret riding or skiing stash).
  • email address in the observation so that we know how to contact you.

You will be entered for every time you submit an observation. 

Your name will be drawn randomly after February.

You can submit via our Observation page or email Have fun and be safe!
