    Hey y’all. Want to let you know about this Saturday’s SoCal Snow Avalanche Fundraiser at Mountain High in Wrightwood.
    From their site. . .

    SCASC has once again teamed up with Teton Gravity Research for the Avalanche Center’s second annual fundraiser with “Higher” Jeremy Jones’ latest film from TGR.
    There will be raffles, silent auctions and much more. Prizes will consist of Snowboards, Avalanche safety equipment, Apparel, Season passes and more. Sponsors include Mt High Resort, Gnu, A16, Wilderness Leadership Institute, Mt Baldy, TGR, Spark R&D, Voile, BCA, Ritual Brewing in Redlands, Rim Nordic, Rim Nordic, Val Surf, 686, Mammoth Mountaineering, Venture, 40 Below, Arc’teryx & Patagonia.
    Every person will get a raffle ticket with entry, with the opportunity to get more tickets through donations inside the event. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the site or at the door.

    There will be avalanche training clinics during the day and programs will depend upon the snow conditions: 8–14″ from Tues morning. We will run an avalanche awareness presentation and beacon search training programs with the beacon training park. If snow permits we will also run a safe travels clinic and have a rescue shoveling competition for prizes.

    The refreshments and food concessions will be available to purchase. Clinics start at 2:30pm with the movie showing at 6:00pm. Live music before and after the movie by Matt Aggers, Raffles and the silent auction will be conducted following the movie. Come out and get some turns in, learn some avalanche safety and watch a great movie.

    Events schedule:
    2:30pm to 4:30pm – Avalanche clinics: Avi awareness, beacon training/ practice etc.
    5:00pm to 6:00pm – Admission to venue, music, mingle
    5:00pm to 7:00pm – food Taco Truck
    5:00pm to 9:00pm – drinks/ bar
    6:00pm to 8:00pm – Movie (including introduction, sponsor recognition and info about avalanche center)
    8:00pm to 9pm – Raffle/ silent auction

    Tickets will be $10.00 and can be purchased on the SCASC site or at the door. Print and save your confirmation as that will be your ticket for entry. All proceeds go to support the avalanche center. Come out and support your local avalanche center and have a great time.

    I am pretty sure they will be giving away a pretty nice splitboard. I hope there will be a large continent. SoCal Splittys represent!. See you there.
