Since the dawn of time, everything that has lived and breathed on this planet has been subject to the whims of Mother Nature. The nature of an adventurer is inherently rogue; typically wild in character, subject to the fancy of their imagination. We are unequivocally drawn to nature’s rawest fury and deepest mysteries. These are the irreverent souls who pursue the edge.
In the winter of 2017, the magnitude of winter’s force was on full display. Telephone poll-snapping storms pounded the Wyoming landscape. Regions to the west, recently left arid and forgotten, were gifted with unprecedented accumulation. Blizzards in Europe buried towns in an instant before disappearing just as fast, leaving the lucky few who were there to wonder if it even happened. A Bolivian expedition found grace above 18,000 feet before the elements went rogue and the humans reluctantly heeded warnings from above.
Join the TGR team as they embark on an adventure filled with fury and glory, and witness the unimaginable.

About the Flathead Avalanche Center:
Based in Hungry Horse, Montana, the center covers an area of approximately 3,300 km2 that includes the Flathead, Swan and Whitefish ranges within the Flathead National Forest and portions of Glacier National Park. Avalanche advisories are regularly issued by 7:30 a.m. every day. We also host on our website an avalanche advisory for the Kootenai National Forest provided by Kootenai NF personnel on Tuesday and Friday.
The Flathead Avalanche Center (FAC) functions as a partnership between the Flathead National Forest and a 501.3c not for profit organization known as the Friends of the Flathead Avalanche Center (FOFAC). These entities have partnered through a formal agreement to provide quality avalanche information products for the public and affected agencies that include avalanche advisories and education.
The purpose of the FAC is to inform and educate the community and businesses about the impact of snow avalanches on recreation, tourism, and industry. The goal is to help provide the public with current avalanche, snowpack and mountain weather information, as well as provide basic avalanche education and educational resources. We achieve our purpose through a dual mission of avalanche forecasting and public education. We do that by giving winter backcountry travelers the tools they need to stay alive and recreate safely in avalanche terrain.
