“I firmly believe that we are all better off if we spend time in the mountains – and NWAC’s main function is to provide our community foundational tools to get them outside in the snow. Problem solving to better equip all of us in the PNW, in the everchanging backcountry space, is what keeps me interested.”

Scott Schell, NWAC Executive Director

Ongoing Outreach

We host a variety of events for the backcountry community to connect our members and industry partners in new and innovative ways so we can continue to inspire future generations of adventurers.
