The Avalanche started out as an independent team in 2004 playing a seven-game season against NWFL opponents.  The Avs would become full members of the NWFL in 2005 and suffered through their worst season in team history going 1-11 salvaging the season with a 7-0 victory against the Pierce County Bengals to keep from becoming the first team in history to lose 12 games in one season.

 

Craig Jackson decided to try something new.  With a change in looks and a change in leagues, the Avalanche left the NWFL for the spring-time Pacific Northwest Conference.  The change worked as they finished 5-4 with an appearance in the PNFC playoffs.

 

2007 brought the team back down to earth finishing 2-7 including a thrashing at the hands of the South Sound Shockers in the PNFC Playoffs 63-0.  Jackson would sell the team off to another ownership group who reorganized under the name Bellingham Bulldogs.
