KNOW THE SNOW FUND

In partnership with Pine Needle Mountaineering, the Know the Snow Fund, also known as the Joe Philpott and Peter Carver Avalanche Scholarship, aims to bring awareness and education to backcountry skiing. As Durango natives Joe and Peter grew up around the San Juan Mountains and they were both adept and well traveled backcountry skiers. In 2013 during two separate, tragic events, Joe and Peter lost their lives to avalanches. Their families want to continue to share their passion for snow safety and skiing through this scholarship.
