Want to help save lives through avalanche education???  Then, please consider supporting the Friends of the Flathead Avalanche Center (FOFAC). FOFAC supports avalanche education and the daily avalanche advisories. Without their support, you would not have daily avalanche information to help you make informed decisions in the backcountry.

Thanks for your support!!!

Spring Avalanche Statement

Our last avalanche advisory of the season was issued Sunday, April 10, 2016. We've issued a spring avalanche statement discussing some of the potential avalanche problems you may encounter this spring. http://www.flatheadavalanche.org/flathead-glacier/advisory#null

Please continue to send in your observations as you are out and about this spring as they are still valuable to everyone still playing in the mountains (submit snowpack or avalanche observations on the website, fac.admin@flatheadavalanche.org, or call 406.387.3821). For now, thanks for all of the observations, feedback, and general support of the Flathead Avalanche Center this year. We wish to thank the Friends of the Flathead Avalanche Center and Glacier National Park for their in-kind and financial support. Todd, Mark, and I greatly appreciate having the support of this amazing community in northwest Montana. We will be working on the 2015-2016 Annual Report over the next month. Thanks!

Have a great spring and summer!
