About FWAC

The Mission

The Fire, Weather & Avalanche Center's (FWAC) mission as a non-profit organization is to bring proprietary and user-friendly products, services, and information to the public—with an emphasis on the backcountry. This includes wildfires, weather, and avalanches. We are currently piloting a suite of products for the Pacific Northwest. Our team is gearing up for great things. We are also testing a new avalanche vulnerability prediction model for release in late Fall 2017. So, get ready!

You can see our portfolio for examples of how we contribute to the local communities.

Sponsors and Donors

There is no way FWAC would survive (period) without sponsors and donors. This collective group of people support FWAC's mission through their financial contributions. We are greatful for all their support! To learn more about donating, visit our donation page.

The backcountry isn't a place; it's a lifestyle!

Our Background

FWAC started in February 2017 as the basis for a platform to serve backcountry users—recreationists—and the public. We love, what we call "gettin' out", and wanted to share our awesome tools and services with everyone else. From mountain biking to hiking to snowmobiling; wildfires, weather, and snow (i.e.: avalanches) affect those activities in some way or another. FWAC develops proprietary, leading-edge products and services for our users and followers; they help those people with critical decisions for their daily lives, and their backcountry adventures. Our team is comprised of several experts in recreation, weather, technology, and business management. FWAC excels at the leadership of these individuals.

Board of Directors

As a non-profit organization, FWAC is given strategic direction and overview from a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors creates annual financial budgets and makes big organizational decisions.

We'll add more information about the Board as time goes on.
