Friends of the San Juans (FOSJ) is a grassroots collective of backcountry enthusiasts committed to providing avalanche awareness and education for winter backcountry users in the San Juan Mountains.

Founded in 2014, we are a non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization managed by both a volunteer executive board and an advisory committee of avalanche professionals.  Our funding comes from generous donations by our members and our local supporting partners.

Thanks to our Volunteer Board Members:  Aaron Ball, Andrew Klotz, Daisy Matthews, Jeremy Dakan, John Byrd, John Strand and Rob Lloyd
