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.
