Wallowa County Gamblers Grooming Report

Report March 6, 2024

NWAC is heartbroken to report the death of our friend and colleague, Nick Burks. On Wednesday, March 6th, Nick and a friend were backcountry skiing on Gunsight Mountain near Anthony Lakes, Oregon, when he triggered an avalanche. Nick has been an integral part of our professional avalanche community for years. 
Nick worked as a part of the snow safety team at Mt Hood Meadows ski area, and more recently, as an avalanche forecaster for the Wallowa Avalanche Center (WAC) in northeastern Oregon. 
We offer our deepest sympathies to our friends at WAC, and stand with everyone touched by this devastating event.

Report for January 27, 2024

This is a cool annual event Connelly Brown puts on... 

Fergi is open January 27-28!
Today up around Fergi the vintage snow cats were touring up towards Mt. Howard. They were quite a sight to see! We are not sure where they will be tomorrow. Keep your eyes open if you are out and about in the mountains.
There is a firm base with about 1 inch of new snow as of today. The forecast is saying rain/snow on Saturday and Sunday so the conditions could change. The hill will still be open even with the forecast. 
Saturday, we still need a volunteer to sell tickets in the ticket booth and one more person to pull Ts. Sunday, we need 3 more people to pull Ts. Sign up ASAP - https://signup.com/go/fqWqnWu
