The fourth installment of the Homegrown Film Festival was a virtual SUCCESS, literally! Although we all missed the high energy crowds, the on-line program was no less thrilling and inspiring, and the commentary no less entertaining! The Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center are sending a heartfelt THANK YOU to Spencer Cordovano and F11 Films, McKenna Peterson, Sophie Maltby, Tina Cole, Jack Weekes, and each and every one of the athletes, filmmakers and sponsors for coming together in this tricky time to produce an outstanding Homegrown event in support of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center. And, we thank YOU, our friends, for joining in the fun! Our local avalanche center truly is a community effort!

Have fun and be safe out there!

With gratitude,
The Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center
