Point6 Shows Its Support for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC)
Point6 to sponsor Friends of the CAIC for 2013 – 2014 Season
Steamboat, Colo. -- (Nov. 8, 2013) --Point6, makers of premium merino wool socks engineered to deliver the ultimate in performance and comfort, is proud to show its support for Friends of the CAIC, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization created to support the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC). The CAIC provides avalanche bulletins and promotes awareness, safety and education throughout the State of Colorado.
Colorado is home to some of the best backcountry terrain in the lower 48, but the snowpack is notoriously dangerous and accounts for one-third of all avalanche fatalities in the United States. With increased traffic in the backcountry, the need for education and safety awareness has never been greater.
“We’re always looking for ways to support the core sports that Point6 is dedicated to,” comments Peter Duke, CEO for Point6. “The CAIC is a crucial avalanche safety resource for our state, and we hope our contribution will help people stay safe in the backcountry this season.”
Point6 will attend several of the CAIC’s events this year, including the Benefit Bash on November 9th in Breckenridge. The annual CAIC Benefit Bash is a crucial fundraising effort that supports avalanche forecasting and education. Point6 will sell discounted pro deals to attendees, and part of the proceeds will directly support Friends of the CAIC.
