Lift ticket sales benefit the Utah Avalanche Center


By Yeti \ February 7 2012

Ski Utah and the Utah resorts have teamed up to donate discount lift tickets to benefit the Utah Avalanche Center (UAC), the folks who help keep us safe in the mountains.  Alta, Snowbird, Brian Head, Park City, Sundance, and Wolf Mountain tickets are still in stock - to save a few bucks and support a great cause, click here.  Seriously, you can save yourself money all while giving back to the UAC. 

Consider this, before heading out into the backcountry to build a kicker or catch some untracked turns, make sure that you know your local mountain's current avalanche danger.  From Logan to Moab, the UAC produces daily avalanche forecasts complete with current conditions.

Additionally, get to know the Know Before you Go program which is an avalanche education program built exclusively for young adults in Utah.  "Just like students in Hawaii learn about the dangers of rip tides and shore breaks at an early age, students in Utah need to learn about avalanches."
