Paralympic champion Chris Waddell will be the featured speaker Friday at the annual Utah Backcountry Awareness benefit dinner in the Cliff Lodge ballroom at Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort.

Organized by the Friends of the Utah Avalanche Center and the Snowbird Renaissance Center, the fundraiser also features a silent auction beginning at 5:30 p.m., dinner, live music and a book signing by Utah Avalanche Center forecaster Bruce Tremper, author of "Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain."

Waddell will describe his development into a Paralympic champion after being paralyzed in a skiing accident while in college.

The cost is $75 a person. Purchasers of a table of 10 will receive two Snowbird lift tickets.

I live for winter, from skiing to snowboarding to bobsledding to aprés skiing, it's all good. I live in Utah because it always snows here.
