Raise dinero for UAC at Black Diamond Fundraising Party
It’s time for the 19th annual Utah Avalanche Center Fundraising Party at the Black Diamond Store! Believe it or not, but fall colors are already starting to show in Parley’s Canyon. Winter is fast approaching, even though it’s still August and those ungodly hot temperatures are vexing us in the valley. But before we know it, the coming of winter will be felt in the air, and those Parley’s Canyon leaves are proof. So although you may still have biking and golf on the brain, it really is time to start thinking about avalanche safety and helping those who keep us alive in the backcountry. The big party will once again be at the Black Diamond Store in Salt Lake City, and this year it takes place on September 13th. Tickets are on sale right now.
Like every year, the Utah Avalanche Center depends on backcountry users like skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, and snowmobilers to help fund their operations so they can continue to keep everybody on top of the snow instead of underneath it from an avalanche burial. Their daily safety reports and exhaustive snowpack research in Utah’s mountains are critical for this life-saving service, but it doesn’t come cheap. That’s why the UAC needs your attendance at the 19th annual Black Diamond Fall Fundraiser.
These early-season fundraising parties are also a good way to get stoked for the upcoming ski season as you gather with like-minded mountain dwellers. These events go a long way toward letting Ullr know our pleasure even if he’s far away in Valhalla. Plus, you’ll get to eat awesome Mexican food, drink beer from Uinta Brewing, listen to live music by Herban Empire, and feel good about helping support your local avalanche center. The event will happen, rain or shine, so be prepared!
The party is on Thursday the 13th from 6pm to 10pm at Black Diamond Equipment, located at 2084 East, 3900 South.
Tickets are $39 if purchased before September 10th then go up to $45.
Tickets are available at the Black Diamond Store or online at UtahAvalancheCenter.org. Anyone under the age of 21 must be accompanied by an adult and unlike a skin track in Mill Creek Canyon, no dogs are allowed.
