Our Mission

The Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC) saves lives by providing avalanche forecasting and education for the Cascade and Olympic Mountains in Washington and northern Oregon. NWAC serves all Northwest citizens by facilitating transportation over the mountain passes, but those who recreate in the mountains in the winter receive the greatest benefit. In addition to forecasting, NWAC offers free avalanche awareness classes to the public, with a particular focus on youth who recreate in the mountains. NWAC’s goal is to prevent avalanche fatalities in the Northwest.

The mission of the Northwest Avalanche Center is to save lives and reduce the impacts of avalanches on recreation, industry and transportation in the Cascade and Olympic Mountains of Washington and northern Oregon through mountain weather and avalanche forecasting, data collection and education.
