Great Fish Challenge and the Whitefish Community Foundation

We are so grateful for our winter-loving community and the support you show us through this annual campaign. While these folks' donations are recognized through the Whitefish Community Foundation, we like to include them in the below list since they play a huge role in making this work possible. 


BNSF has been a long supporter of avalanche safety and the avalanche center. Working closely together on weather stations, observations, and more throughout the years. We are grateful to add them to our list of granting partners for the 2021-2022 season. 

Dream Marine

Huge thanks to our friends at Dream Marine in Libby, who are supporting avalanche forecasts with a loaner snowmobile courtesy of Ski-Doo for the 2021-2022 season. This is a critical piece of equipment for our forecast and education team and we are so grateful for your continued support of this program.  

Whitefish Convention and Visitors Bureau

The WCVB is supporting the 21-22 season with signage at popular trailheads (coming soon!), support of the fireside chats, our facilitated community debrief chats, and the Northern Rockies Snow and Avalanche Workshop.
