If you live in a bubble and have not heard, California and other parts of the Pacific Northwest are burning. Raging on for a few months experts are calling these the worst in history. Since the beginning of 2020 there have been over 8,000 fires resulting in 4.1 million acres burned in California alone.
As the devastation continues to rage across the west coast, 10 Barrel Brewing is doing their part to help the relief efforts by auctioning off their iconic Pray for Snow Truck. A M939 Series 5-ton 6×6 vehicle, manufactured by AM General, this truck will allow you to bring the mountain to your street block.

The 10 Barrel team originally renovated this 1984 ex-Military Truck back in 2015 to use as a rail jam feature at their legendary Pray for Snow parties, fall Teton Gravity Research (TGR) Film Tours, and annual Bend Winterfest events. It’s the perfect no snow ski slope for you and your friends to practice tricks or just rip down on whatever slides.

The best part is that 10 Barrel is donating 100% of the sales from this truck to the American Red Cross in an effort to help the first responders and communities impacted by the devastating fires across the West Coast.
If you want to own this, you need to act fast. Individuals can submit offers via the posted craigslist ad – with the truck going to the highest bidder at the end of the event. The fundraiser will run until October 15th. Bidding is open to all interested parties.
