The Crested Butte Avalanche Center’s (CBAC) sole purpose is to prevent the loss of life, limb, and property to natural and triggered occurrence of avalanches in the backcountry surrounding Crested Butte.  The CBAC provides valuable and needed information and education to residents, visitors, and recreationalists in the Gunnison Valley, disseminating content through website, email, radio, social media, newspaper, and outreach events.  The CBAC issues daily avalanche advisories, including mountain weather forecasts, avalanche danger ratings, expected avalanche problems, travel advice, and forecast discussion, through the winter season, with fall and spring updates as conditions warrant. The CBAC provides additional resources, such as public and professional snowpack, weather, and avalanche observations, weather stations, and educational events and material.
