Each November, just before the snow flies, Sierra Avalanche Center and Granite Chief team up to present the latest in snow safety practices and how to improve your avalanche awareness.  Sierra Avalanche Center has become the go to website for the latest forecast for backcountry travel. The dedicated experts at SAC is an important proactive group working hard to keep our community of backcountry enthusiast safe.

Beers, Brats, and Airbags is also a fundraiser to help support the good works of Sierra Avalanche Center, a non-profit organization. In partnership with our ski and mountaineering partners we have pulled together great prizes to raffle off. As always Backcountry Access (BCA), is donating the top prize, an avalanche airbag and Marmot has donated a 4 season backcountry tent. Below is a growing list of manufacturers and local merchants that have donated goods and services to ensure a fun and successful 5th ANNUAL, BEERS, BRATS, & AIRBAGS fundraiser and awareness event.
