Spring 2014!!!

We are closed for the season, but mountains will be mountains, and avalanches don't care if it is spring. Remember to respect complicated terrain, keep your eyes open to obvious clues, and take nothing for granted. Above all, have a safe and enjoyable summer!

I would like to thank the many, many people who make this service possible - the Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center, local businesses, the guides and ski patrol workers, and the backcountry skiers and riders. It's a remarkable community effort. Thank you for all your help, your donations, your observations, and your enthusiasm.

We will post our annual report the 1st week in May.
