Steve Gladbach Memorial Avalanche Awareness

One of Steve's passions was mountaineering education and safety. Makes sense as his professional working life was spent teaching the next generation about the wonders of science. Through the generosity of family and friends, the Steve Gladbach Memorial Fund was created to promote Colorado mountaineering education. Managed by the Colorado Mountain Club, the funds are available for grassroots education grant projects, education scholarships to supplement the recipient's mountaineering education pursuits and public service projects.
