Point6 is proud to show its support for Friends of the CAIC, a non-profit organization created to support the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC), which provides avalanche bulletins and promotes awareness, safety and education throughout Colorado.
Our great state is home to some of the best backcountry terrain in the lower 48, but the snowpack is notoriously dangerous and accounts for one-third of all avalanche fatalities in the United States. With increased traffic in the backcountry, the need for education and safety awareness has never been greater.
The CAIC is a crucial avalanche safety resource for our state, and we hope our contribution will help people stay safe in the backcountry this season.
Point6 will attend several of the CAIC’s events this year, including the Benefit Bash on November 9th in Breckenridge. The annual CAIC Benefit Bash is a crucial fundraising effort that supports avalanche forecasting and education. Point6 will be there to celebrate along with pro deal sales of its premium merino wool ski and snowboard socks for attendees in support of the Alliance.
