Backcountry Access (BCA) has announced the recipients of its 2002-03 Avalanche Education Support Grants. The announcement was made by BCA and Rescue Technology, the designer of the Tracker DTS avalanche beacon. The two companies joined forces to donate $20,000 worth of funding and equipment to organizations dedicated to increasing avalanche education in North America.

The top recipients of cash and/or equipment grants were the Alpine Safety Awareness Program of Bellingham, Wash.; Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center in Bozeman, Mont.; the Sawtooth National Forest Avalanche Center in Ketchum, Idaho; Teton County (Idaho) Search and Rescue; and the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education, based in Crested Butte.

As part of its Avalanche Education Support Program, BCA's technical reps are also providing avalanche awareness and companion rescue workshops across North America, mainly to user groups that aren't already receiving such education.
