Our Mission:

To support the Mount Washington Avalanche Center by enhancing and expanding avalanche education opportunities, advocating for responsible and sustainable backcountry recreation in New Hampshire’s unique alpine ecosystems, and expanding the reach of US Forest Service avalanche forecasts and messages.


Mount Washington Avalanche Center Foundation is the combination of two historic and critical support groups. Friends of Tuckerman Ravine and the White Mountain Avalanche Education Foundation have joined forces as the Mount Washington Avalanche Center Foundation. 

For over two decades, Friends of Tuckerman Ravine has supported the Mount Washington Avalanche Center (MWAC) through funding, volunteer hours, outreach and conservation efforts, and community events. For the last 10 years, the White Mountain Avalanche Education Foundation has supported MWAC through educational programs, events, and funding. Both groups have been absolutely critical to the success of the Mount Washington Avalanche Center and this merger enhances the ability for the non-profit pillar of MWAC to provide financial support to the avalanche forecasting and search and rescue programs while also offering historic events, outreach and educational opportunities to the greater backcountry community.
