The Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (Friends of CAIC) is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to promote avalanche safety in Colorado. The Friends work with the CAIC to ensure information on avalanche conditions is available to the public and to promote avalanche safety through innovative educational efforts and sponsored events.
The Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) is a program within the Colorado Department of Natural Resources tasked with reducing the impact of snow avalanches on recreation, industry, and transportation. The program receives funding from the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Colorado Severance Tax Fund, and cash funding via contracts, grants, and donations, most of which come from the users of the forecasting and educational services. The CAIC depends on a successful fundraising effort in order to carry out its mission.
