Avalanche Alliance has revealed a massive sweepstakes to raise money for avalanche awareness and education initiatives around North America. The grand prize is a customized 2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty and other prizes have been provided by FLY Racing, KLIM and Marlon. The Avalanche Alliance is made up of multiple companies and organizations across the motorized community who all collaborate to bring Avalanche Education and Awareness to the forefront of our industry.
Proceeds from these sweepstakes will be awarded to Avalanche Centers in support of motorized-focused programs, Avalanche Alliance Scholarship Programs and Avalanche Alliance Ambassador Training and Community Education Initiatives.
This is a monumental step for the motorized snow sport community, with brands and riders joining together for the common goal of reducing avalanche fatalities among the community. The need for motorized-specific avalanche safety improvements remains significant, and this partnership of like-minded brands and organizations indicates a noteworthy step towards improvements in training, forecasting and infrastructure for the benefit of riders everywhere.
"Avalanche Centers are a key link in the connection between the snowmobiling community and the goal of reducing the impact of avalanches and avalanche accidents,” Jeff Hambelton, AIARE motorized program manager and NWAC staff member said. “With these sweepstakes, we can support Avalanche Centers' efforts to build better tools for the motorized community.”
Following the success of three previous Avalanche Alliance / KLIM sled giveaways, prizes have been added for 2022. The grand prize is bigger than ever before: a brand new 2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty with upgrades from Wheel Pros, ReadyLIFT, ReadyAIR and Morimoto. First prize is a Marlon Xplore Pro II sled deck. Second prize is a KLIM riding gear kit including top-shelf products like their F3 Carbon Helmet, Lochsa One-Piece, Atlas 26 Avy Pack, Edge Goggles and Adrenaline Pro GTX BOA Boots. Third Prize is a Fly Racing Snow Gear Package including the Formula Helmet, Zone Pro Goggles, Incline Jacket and Pants, Heated Title Gloves and Inversion Double BOA Boots.
The Grand Prize 2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty is upgraded with Wheel Pros wheels, ReadyLIFT 2.5 inch Lift & Leveling Kit w/ Falcon Shocks, ReadyAIR Load Leveling Bags, Morimoto Head/Tail Lights & Aux Lights and features the Lariat trim package with Ford’s 6.7 Powerstroke V8 Diesel among a host of other desirable features.
Avalanche Centers, while partially funded in the U.S. by the USFS, rely on strong community support for their efforts to present the most up-to-date and useful information for backcountry travelers. Avalanche Centers fund and manage remote weather stations, employ forecasters to track and interpret field and weather data, and increasingly play a leading role in education efforts for underserved populations in the backcountry.
Avalanche safety is extremely important to motorized users. This fundraiser is a way for Avalanche Alliance to join snowmobilers, snowbikers, manufacturers, avalanche centers, training providers, and others together in support of avalanche safety initiatives. More fundraisers in the future will continue to support these efforts.
