Chris Brookes, Executive Director of the Alberta Snowmobile Association (ASA), was presented with Avalanche Canada’s annual service award for 2018 for his exceptional dedication to public avalanche safety. Brent Strand, Avalanche Canada’s snowmobile program coordinator, made the presentation at the Alberta Snowmobile and Powersports Show in Edmonton, October 14.

Chris and the ASA has been a long-time supporter of Avalanche Canada and a strong advocate of avalanche safety training. Under Chris’ leadership, the ASA offers a bursary program for up to 100 of their club members that fully reimburses riders who take an AST course.

“Chris continues to demonstrate true leadership in his efforts to encourage avalanche safety training among snowmobilers,” said Brent. “His support for our work has made a big difference and we are very pleased to recognize his work with this award.”
