Powder Blast goes virtual

For the first time in 22 years, Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center (GNFAC) is having to cancel its most important fundraiser – the Powder Blast. It is an event that annually provides over $100,000 in support to the GNFAC in an effort to assist community members who push to the backcountry.

Respect the range

About 10 miles south of Big Sky on Hwy. 191 is a shooting range on the west side of the road. The property is courtesy of the Forest Service, but the sweat equity to make it nice and keep it open belongs entirely to a handful of dedicated locals.

The global nonprofit Adventure Scientists was founded in Bozeman just over a decade ago and has sent thousands of volunteers to remote locations – creating the means for outdoor/adventure enthusiasts to make a difference. PHOTO COURTESY ADVENTURE SCIENTISTS
