The Colorado Avalanche Information Center strives to minimize the economic and human impact of snow avalanches on the recreation, tourism and commerce industries. Colorado has one of the most dangerous snowpacks in North America and typically accounts for one third of all avalanche fatalities in the United States. With the winter in full swing and the snowpack being incredibly tender so far, it is important that the avalanche center continues to receive support so it can provide valuable information for those venturing into the backcountry. The center could not operate without the support of its friends and regular users through funding opportunities such as this event.
The Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization created to support the CAIC, while contributing to avalanche awareness and education throughout the State of Colorado. CAIC achieves this mission through donations, grants, and fundraising events.

Wildlife officials: Even with abundant natural foods for bears around Aspen, people need to secure sources
An abundant bounty of natural food is expected for bears around the Aspen area but serviceberry, choke cherry and acorns are generally maturing late because of all the snow last winter and a wet, cool spring. Wildlife officers stress that even with abundant natural food available, people need to eliminate food sources for bruins because they will always go for an easy meal.
