It’s Giving Tuesday! Here are Some Organizations to Support

The Tuesday after we all stuff ourselves with turkey and pie marks one of the most generous days of the year. Giving Tuesday is all about giving support, showing generosity and kindness to our communities. For us in the outdoor world, it’s a really great chance to donate to the organizations that build our mountain bike trails, provide avalanche forecasts, give river beta, work to protect the places we love, and make those places more inclusive. Whether it’s sharing their posts on Instagram and telling your friends or donating a few bucks, there’s a lot of ways to give back today. We’ve compiled a list of organizations we think are pretty rad to support this Giving Tuesday.

Trail Building Organizations

Mountain bike trails don’t just appear out of nowhere, they take time and skill to build. Most places with a bike scene have a trail organization, but here’s a couple to get you started.

Teton Freedom Riders

Routt County Riders

Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association

Fast

Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance

Avalanche Forecast Centers

We all rely on avalanche forecasts when getting in the backcountry. Without the diligent work of these centers, we wouldn’t have the detailed reports many of us use to stay safe in the mountains.

Bridger Teton Avalanche Center

Colorado Avalanche Information Center

Northwest Avalanche Center

Mount Washington Avalanche Center

Mount Shasta Avalanche

Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center

Utah Avalanche Center

Avalanche Canada Center

For Rivers

Between putting flow information and beta all in one accessible place and working to keep our rivers free flowing and wild, these organizations work to educate us and protect our rivers so that generations to come can enjoy them.

American Rivers

American Whitewater

Idaho Rivers United

Friends of the White Salmon

Save the Colorado

Free Rivers Fund

BIPOC Outdoor Organizations

These organizations work to break barriers into the outdoors for marginalized communities by amplifying their voices and creating a more inclusive space to learn, teach, and recreate.

Outdoor Afro

Brown Girls Climb

Textured Waves

Get Out Stay Out

Diversify Whitewater

Even the most experienced riders aren't immune to unstable snowpack. Maurice Kervin learned this firsthand last Friday while snowboarding on Loveland Pass, his 65th day of riding this season.  Kervin and his ski partners had been keeping a close eye on the avalanche forecast all week. Although the danger had actually dropped, Kervin recalls feeling unsure of the conditions. Intending to ski a line called 'No Name,' the pair set out, and tested snow stability along the way, not finding any red

Must Watch: Wave Skiing at Mavericks

Big waves are nothing new to surfers these days, but how about to skiers?

Using custom skis designed specifically for this feat, and taking inspiration from Patterson's late friend, Shane McConkey, they allow him to carve the waves as he would snow. Fitted with classic ski bindings, and worn with regular ski boots, the carnage if Patterson

While the rider was unresponsive upon being found by his partners, they were able to revive him
