Eastern Sierra Avalanche Center (ESAC) is submitting an application for the Off-Highway Vehicleb(OHV) Grant program through California State Parks and is hosting a virtual public meeting to gather public input. The meeting will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, February 28, 2023 at 7 pm. A link to this public meeting is available on www.esavalanche.org.

The Eastern Sierra Avalanche Center is a community-supported 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to inform and educate the public on avalanche conditions in the backcountry of the Eastern Sierra Nevada of California. The ESAC forecast area extends from Big Pine to the north of Lee Vining and includes avalanche terrain that is open to winter motorized use.

The OHV Grant would help ESAC fund increased education and outreach to winter OHV users as well as support essential ESAC services including the daily winter avalanche advisory.
This virtual meeting is to gather public input prior to submitting ESAC’s application. Following
the submission of our preliminary application, there will be a period for public review and
comment that begins March 7, 2023 and ends on May 1, 2023.

Instructions and details on how to comment on ESAC’s preliminary grant application will be available at www.esavalanche.org.

More information on the California OHV grant program can also be found at
