The CSAC Avalanche Center is the oldest, largest, and most established internet resource for avalanche safety and science information. In the seven years they have been online they have established tremendous growth. CSAC continues to serve the winter recreation community, the avalanche professional community, educators, and the general public around the world.

Snow avalanches are the single greatest threat to mountain recreationists in winter. The growth in backcountry use continues to skyrocket, and as a result so does the number of people at risk. While many are quick to promote mountain recreation there is significantly less interest in promoting safety awareness and education. The CSAC believes that more resources promoting avalanche safety are essential in order to enable people to make informed choices in the backcountry and in their activity planning. The CSAC is a non-profit organization, entirely volunteer- and sponsor-supported, run by a small number of dedicated individuals with backgrounds in mountain guiding, education, science, and outdoor retailing.

CSAC is the only international organization devoted entirely to snow avalanches. They are currently established with non-profit designations in both the US and Canada, and continue to strengthen their presence in Europe. Their primary goal has always been to serve the general public with information and education. CSAC maintains the largest and most comprehensive database of accidents and avalanche courses anywhere.
