The Avalanche Canada Foundation would like to congratulate Mark Mitchell on his successful completion of the CAA Avalanche Operations Level 1 course last winter. Mark received $1,500 from the Foundation's Al Hodgson Scholarship Fund.

The Al Hodgson Fund is currently seeking funding. If you are interested in helping more snowmobilers take recreational- or professional-level avalanche training, please consider donating here. Professional trained snowmobilers become mentors in their community, helping build a culture of safety.
