We are committed to a practice which respects the principles of Leave No Trace. In addition to offering Leave No Trace Skills courses, we bring bio bags on every trip so that we can pack out trash that we encounter in the wilderness.

We are a proud Leave No Trace Partner and we have integrated LNT principles into all of our programs giving our clients tools to reduce their impact on the land which are relevant to their context.

Important Causes

We believe in people affecting positive change in the world through community and non-profit organizations.

We donate 3% of our profits each year to up to three organizations which benefit the outdoors vis-à-vis access, safety, or education.

Past organizations include the American Avalanche Association, the Access Fund, and our local avalanche forecasting operation, the Northwest Avalanche Center.

InfoEx AutoWx

Avalanche professionals use the InfoEx to share snowpack information amongst operations in their region.

We created InfoEx AutoWx for our winter operations to automatically populate weather stations with data from NRCS or MesoWest, saving time and reducing error.

We have made this available to the avalanche professional community for free.
