Friends of the San Juans (FOSJ) is a grassroots collective of backcountry enthusiasts committed to providing avalanche awareness and education for winter backcountry users in the San Juan Mountains.
Founded in 2014 by a handful of backcountry riders, we are a non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization managed by both a volunteer executive board and an advisory committee of avalanche professionals. Our funding comes from generous donations by our members and our local supporting partners.
Thanks to our Volunteer Board Members: Aaron Ball, Andrew Klotz, Daisy Matthews, Jeremy Dakan, Michael Ackerman, John Strand and Rob Lloyd
