12th Annual EOBF Grosses $8,000

Thanks to all our sponsors, volunteers, board members, and avalanche forecasters who worked so hard to put on this special event.  We had a good turnout for the Kip Rand Race, snow safety clinics, and Sunday’s tour with a WAC Forecaster.  A huge shout out to Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort for hosting us, and Tyler Brooks and his band for rocking on Saturday afternoon in the lodge.  Finally, I would like to again thank all of our sponsors for 2023-24, we couldn’t do it without your generous support!  Please help support these businesses and thank them for their generosity.

A special thanks to the Union County Chamber of Commerce for their support of the Eastern Oregon Backcountry Festival through their TRT Grant Program which helped us promote and host the event to attendees outside of our community.



Snowmobile Riding clinics with the Boondockers Crew!

Feb 9th and Feb 10th we are hosting three of the Boondockers for a motorized riding clinic in Halfway, OR.  Join Aaron Case, Ryan Searle and DJ Osborne who will be running clinics on Friday and Saturday.  Whether you are learning how to carve pow turns, working on wrong foot forward, or dialing in your bow tie, these guys will elevate your game.  Cost $225/person/day.  Must be 16 years or older to register.

All of the money generated from these courses goes into the WAC General Fund to pay for Avalanche Forecasting, website and weather station maintenance and more.  You get a great course and support your local non-profit avalanche center.  If you have any questions please get in touch with Development Director Rex Stanley at rex@wallowaavalanchecenter.org
