BOULDER, CO — (Press Release) - The 6th annual fundraiser for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) will be in Boulder, CO, and hosted by Backcountry Access (BCA). It will take place from 5pm to 10pm on Friday, Sept. 7, outside Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder. The Avalanche Jam is a fundraiser for the Boulder-based Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC).

In addition to live music, the event will include dinner, beer from New Belgium Brewery, an outdoor industry demo village, and a silent auction. Donors to the silent auction include BCA, Karhu, Patagonia, Scarpa, Marmot, Outdoor Research, MSR, and Sierra Designs, and the list is growing daily.

Last year's proceeds provided the CAIC with much-needed funds to offer avalanche education and forecasting for users of the Colorado backcountry, home to one of the largest backcountry recreational markets in North America. Coupled with the most dangerous snowpack in North America, the CAIC plays an integral role in daily trip planning for Colorado backcountry users so they can recreate safely. The CAIC is partially funded by the Colo. Dept. of Transportation, State of Colorado, the Colorado ski industry, and a group of backcountry users called the Friends of the CAIC.

"It is a great way to prep for the ski season, catch up with old friends, and support avalanche forecasting and education in Colorado. Come enjoy a great event and support avalanche safety in Colorado. We really appreciate every dollar raised to help the CAIC, said Ethan Greene, Director of CAIC.

Beginning Aug. 10, tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Children 6-12 are $10 and free for the 5 and under crowd. They can be purchased in advance at your local outdoor retailer or by calling Backcountry Access at 303-417-1345. For sponsorship information, call Steve Christie at BCA at or email steve@bcaccess.com.
