Vertfest is a multi-stop mountain festival dedicated to raising the level of avalanche awareness, snow safety education, and stoke for backcountry enthusiasts.

In 2014, Vertfest raised over $40,000 for the Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC), the Utah Avalanche Center (UAC) and the Central Oregon Avalanche Association (COAA). Help us break that record, and head out to your local stop of the Vertfest Tour in 2015!

Vertfest Alpental Update - From NWAC

The unthinkable has happened and we are having to cancel Vertfest Alpental this winter. There simply is not enough snow on the ground at Alpental to host the event safely, and the predictions for additional snow are not very promising at this point. This was a difficult decision for us, as Vertfest has become a much-anticipated event for the Northwest backcountry community and a significant fundraiser for NWAC. If you are interested in donating to NWAC, we encourage you to donate via our website here . Thank you all for your interest in Vertfest, and here’s to a better winter in 2016!
