The Vancouver Island Avalanche Centre Society hosts several events each season which are a huge amount of fun, as well as important fundraisers to keep the bulletin alive.
Party For the Bulletin
November 16th, The Riding Fool Hostel, Cumberland
The formula is pretty simple: you turn up at the Riding Fool Hostel. You enjoy some fine brew supplied by our friends at Cumberland Brewing. You dance with your friends to the awesome tunes. You go and bid on an array of silent auction items that make snow lovers drool (think, skis, transceivers, outdoor clothing etc. etc.
Vancouver Island Backcountry Festival
February 8-9, Mount Cain
The Backcountry Festival is an annual fundraiser for the Bulletin that includes an amazing raffle with prizes generously donated by our sponsors, a beer garden, a forecaster Q&A, and a late night DJ dance party on the snow in the woods!
