Celebrating Small Business Week

Helen Scott and Larry Urness opened Avalanche Trucking in 2003. They started off small and then in December of 2006 moved into their new location.

Throughout the years the hardest challenges they have faced, are the availability of parts and materials used in their operations, the road conditions and finding skilled laborers.

With most of their work going out to the Oil and Gas industry, they have seen both up and down periods during each year. They thank a lot of their success on having competent drivers and dedicated staff. The future will hopefully hold strong, allowing them to expand their business and purchase more equipment.

They enjoy supporting the community. Helen offered this advice to new entrepreneurs; research your market well, make sure there is a need for your business, and never give up.
