Tourism Revelstoke encouraging donations to Avalanche Canada
Tourism Revelstoke anticipates that the winter of 2020/2021 will be a big year for backcountry skiing and backcountry access.
They want to ensure they are doing their part to support Avalanche Canada’s efforts to keep backcountry users safe.
This winter, for every visitor who stays two nights or more in participating accommodation and accesses the backcountry via ski, snowboard, or snowmobile, Tourism Revelstoke will donate $10 to Avalanche Canada.
Tourism Revelstoke is also encouraging backcountry users to donate to Avalanche Canada directly. The tagline for the campaign is “You’re getting out there
and we’re giving back”.
"We are anticipating a larger number of people entering the backcountry this winter, and we know how important Avalanche Canada is as a leader in backcountry education and safety," explains Meghan Tabor, Manager of Tourism Revelstoke.
"With Revelstoke being such a mecca for exploration, backcountry adventure is in our DNA. While we want to promote this recreation opportunity, we also want to recognize and support the organization that provides the programs to keep people safe while they are out there."
Avalanche Canada is an important organization and Tourism Revelstoke is proud to have it headquartered in Revelstoke.
Tourism Revelstoke is hoping the campaign spurs recognition of the importance of avalanche forecasting and safety programs provided by Avalanche Canada.
