The event was a fundraiser for the club, the Canadian Avalanche Centre and the Revelstoke Food Bank. The totals weren’t available by press time, but so far it’s over $8,000 and counting. Check next week’s issue of the Times Review for a snow season preview on the club’s activities. Pictured above from left: Backcountry Access representative Tyler Paynton donated a high-end airbag for the benefit; Sylvan Lake, Alberta resident Eric Wickberg had the top bid of $1,200; Yamaha district sales manager and Team Thunderstruck rider Randy Swenson emceed the raffle and auction and brought lots of great gear.
