Jasper Thompson

(505) 699-9912

I began my avalanche educator career with Silverton Avalanche School in 2017, but have since relocated to Boulder and am developing a relationship with Colorado Mountain School. My primary employment is as Operations Technician for Wyssen USA Inc where I maintain Remote Avalanche Control Systems to protect ski areas, roads, and buildings from avalanches. I also work in pure snow science for Center for Snow and Avalanche Studies monitoring dust on snow and snow water content in Colorado. I enjoy being in extreme environments and the teamwork that those environments nourish. This is one of the best reasons to teach and to ski.
