Time to bump this thread again for ski season! We kicked off our series of free avalanche awareness talks last night at DU. We'll be adding a class at Wilderness Exchange and hopefully one in Colorado Springs. I've provided a list of our events below but you can get more info on our website, http://www.berthoudpass.org

First things first though, we're teaming up with Powderwhore to throw a few fundraising parties and show their new film. Showings tomorrow at Bent Gate, Saturday at the Oriental, Monday in Fraser, and next Thursday in Boulder. Every event will have a raffle and we've got a lot of big ticket items to give away, like a level one avy class from Alpine World Ascents, skis, a snowboard, avy gear, etc. For those of you who weren't able to make it last year (or didn't notice the snowboarder), Powderwhore is no longer just tele. Yes, I know the 5 or 6 of you that still tele are disappointed. Sorry. I've heard the film is awesome this year. See ya'll out there.




Nov 1 - Powderwhore ski movie, Bent Gate Mountaineering, Golden, movie at 8pm
Nov 3 - Powderwhore ski movie, The Oriental Theater, Denver, doors at 6pm, movie at 8pm
Nov 5 - Powderwhore ski movie, Crooked Creek Saloon, Fraser
Nov 8 - Powderwhore ski movie, Asher Brewery, Boulder (14ers happy hour with raffle to benefit FOBP is the same night at Strange Brewing)
Nov 10 - CAIC Benefit Bash, Riverwalk Center, Breckenridge
Nov 15 - Avy Class, Bent Gate, Golden
Dec 3 - Avy Class, HUMN 1B50, University of Colorado, Boulder
Dec 17 - Avy Class, Oriental Theater, Denver
Dec 18 - Christmas Party, Pints for a Purpose, Copper Kettle Brewing Company
Dec 19 - Avy Class, Bent Gate, Golden
Jan 16 - Avy Class, Oriental Theater, Denver
Jan 23 - Avy Class, Bent Gate, Golden
Jan 24 - Backcountry Film Festival, The Oriental Theater, Denver
Jan 28 - Avy Class, Oriental Theater, Denver
Jan 30 - Avy Class, HUMN 1B50, University of Colorado, Boulder
Feb 9 and 10 - On-Snow, Berthoud Pass

As I reviewed this thread today and looked at the posts from last season it was a somber but welcomed reminder of our friend Rob. Hope everyone enjoys a safe snow season in this mountains this year.

Great show last night at Bent Gate. I had not expected Powderwhore to come through with that much beer from Big Sky Brewing! My head hurts. Huge thanks to Bent Gate, Powderwhore, and Big Sky. Raised a bunch of money for avy awareness. Lordhelmut, thanks for the help at the FOBP table.

Doors open at 6pm Saturday so come early and hang out. See ya'll then.

Bump bump!

It's that time of year.....the snow starts to fly and the ski film companies are on tour. This year FOBP is continuing the tradition, and privilege, of partnering with Powderwhore. Come help us celebrate our 10 year anniversary of access, education, and safety with a few fundraising parties around the denver-metro area and showings of Powderwhore's new movie, Elevation (which looks absolutely killer). And yes, the raffle is stacked....yet again. The first showing is Nov. 1st at the Oriental Theater, which if you've never been is a great time, followed by showings at Bent Gate Nov. 2nd, Wilderness Exchange Nov. 5th, and Neptune Nov. 7th and 8th. Check the full Colorado schedule here: http://www.powderwhore.com/tour/colorado/.



We have not yet finalized the avalanche awareness class schedule for this year, but once we've figured it out we'll let you know - check back here or the website http://berthoudpass.org/ for details.

Hope to see you at one (or more) of the shows!
