With the announcement by Avalanche Canada to produce an avalanche bulletin for Vancouver Island this winter, VIACS has made the tough call and decided to close up shop. We at VIACS would like to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts (the public, our sponsors, volunteers and all the folks that have been a part of VIACS over the years). It has been an amazing journey over many great seasons of winter adventure. Stay safe and have fun out there. To access bulletins, send field reports and to check out many great avalanche education tools go to Avalanche Canada’s website at www.avalanche.ca . Av Can will have a field team on the island, so if you see them around feel free to chat with them and share the wonderful island spirit that you all gave to the VIACS folks. Happy trails.
