It was a big day for the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club on Saturday, as they took advantage of Avalanche Awareness Days to make a few big announcements.

Above: First, the club shows off the latest addition to their grooming fleet — a brand new Prinroth BR 350 the club purchased for about $300,000. One third of the cost was paid for by the tourism infrastructure fund, while the club took out a loan for the rest.

Top right: The club, in partnership with Team Thunderstruck, makes a $10,000 donation to Avalanche Canada. From left: Tom Riley from Avalanche Canada accepts the cheque from Jeff Rosner and Randy Swenson of Team Thunderstruck, and Kathy Burke of the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club.

Bottom right: Rosner, Burke and Swenson dedicate a memorial plaque to Shay Snortland and Kurtis Reynolds, the two victims of the March 2010 Boulder Mountain Avalanche; and Chris McCoy, who died in an avalanche on Boulder in February 2014.
