With the onset of winter and the opening of Utah’s ski resorts, Executive Chef Nathan Powers of Bambara, has created a “Snowstorm” lunch special to benefit the Utah Avalanche Center. The Utah Avalanche Center provides the daily advisories and resources people need to make educated decisions in the backcountry. Throughout the entire month of December, for each three-course lunch special purchased, Bambara will donate one dollar to the center.
The daily three-course lunch special, priced at $13, includes a choice of organic greens or cup of the daily soup selection, one of three entrée selections and one of chef Powers’ special house-made warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies. Entrée selections include: a house-ground 9 oz. burger with slowly grilled onions, horseradish crème frâiche and white cheddar cheese; a smoked turkey wrap with smoky bacon, dill havarti cheese, sundried cranberry jam, herbed potato chips; or the special of the day.
“The Utah Avalanche Center is integral to our safety as it provides critical avalanche and mountain weather information to help people make life-and-death decisions in the backcountry. The goal of the organization has been to keep people on top of the Greatest Snow on Earth® instead of being buried beneath it,” said Chef Powers. “I love Utah for the unsurpassed mountain recreation here. As residents and business operators, I think it’s important that we give back and support the organizations that help us to safely enjoy the luxuries of winter sports.”
“Along with the Greatest Snow On Earth comes some of the greatest avalanche danger in the world within sight of where most of us live and work. Avalanches are predictable, not mysterious. The most effective way to have fun and stay alive in the mountains in the winter is to learn about avalanches and go out each day armed with the most recent advisory, avalanche gear and the knowledge of how to use it, and a basic understanding of how to safely enjoy travel and recreation in avalanche terrain,” said Paul Diegel, Executive Director.
