Utah Avalanche Center

Utah Avalanche Center

The Utah Avalanche Center is a collaborative effort between the Forest Service Utah Avalanche Center and the Friends of the Utah Avalanche Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to keep people on top of the Greatest Snow on Earth™. We do that by giving winter backcountry travelers the tools they need to stay alive and have fun in avalanche terrain.

The UAC interacts on a daily basis with local ski resorts, Utah Department of Transportation, ski guide operators, search and rescue, law enforcement, and event organizers to share up-to-date information and training.

We host the annual Utah Snow and Avalanche Workshop for snow safety professionals and high-level recreationists to meet and share most recent avalanche ideas and knowledge.  Modern avalanche science began in Little Cottonwood Canyon and we continue to lead the US in applied snow science and innovative avalanche awareness and education programs that we share with other US and international avalanche centers.
