Friends of the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center

Exped LLC (that's us, the North American subsidiary of Exped in Switzerland) is located in the Seattle area between two mountain ranges. In the winter we love to ski, both the lift areas and the backcountry. And one of the keys to being prepared for backcountry skiing is a knowledge of the rapidly changing weather and snow conditions. We, and many other winter sport folks, rely on the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center for this information all season long.

Every year, in early November, the Friends of NWAC put on a great party and raise money for NWAC. This year, Exped is donating two Lite 300 sleeping bags to the raffle. If you are in Seattle next weekend please consider attending Snowbash at the Tractor Tavern in Ballard. It's fun and you just might win one of these sleeping bags.

Bring on winter!
