More than $10K raised for CMH guide injured in avalanche in less than 24 hours

‘Big Al’ has been a long-time fixture of the CMH Monashees community – last week he suffered a severe concussion and broke his femur

They’ve called him ‘Big Al’ for most of his life. But last week the long-time fixture of the Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH) heli ski guide community suffered a serious concussion and broke his femur after being caught in an avalanche north of Revelstoke. Allan is currently in stable condition.

In less than 24 hours, an online fundraising campaign has raised more than $10K to support his recovery.

“Very lucky to be alive,” the GoFundMe campaign description said. “Al is now on his road to recovery.”
