The organization came to life from an idea that Ian spoke often about. Through the hard work of his friends and family the Nest-Egg was born. Ian was an expert skier, backcountry enthusiast, and Stowe legend who was lost to avalanche in Colorado this past spring. He was the co-founder of the Stowe Mountain Film Festival, and drummer for the regional touring rock band, Named By Strangers, whose raucous New Year's and Halloween shows at the Rusty Nail are now legendary.
The primary mission of the International Avalanche Nest-Egg is to assist the children and families of avalanche victims with immediate and long-term financial needs associated with the death of a loved one. The long-term goal is to put these children through college and create financial stability in a time of need. The secondary mission is to increase avalanche awareness, and further support the responsible enjoyment of backcountry sports.
The evening's entertainment will be kicked off by Victor Veve and Jeremey Harple of the Aerolites backed by Micah Sanguedolce, Peter Bixby, and Dannis Hackney. All donations will go to the fund.
