Course Leader, Staff
Chris is the Snowbird Snow Safety Supervisor and calls Little Cottonwood Canyon in Utah his home. His journey to Snowbird started long ago on the frozen slopes of the Adirondack Mountains in New York. From there, college took Chris to the Front Range of Colorado where he got an Engineering Degree from the Colorado School of Mines, and more importantly, started dabbling in the snow covered Rocky Mountains. Choosing to leave behind the engineering world for snowy slopes has allowed Chris to work as an industrial avalanche forecaster in Chile, an AIARE certified recreational instructor throughout the western US, and to obtain his Canadian Avalanche Association Operations Level 3. Chris joined the AIARE Instructor Staff as a member of the PRO Instructor team in 2019. Currently, Chris stays busy forecasting avalanches at Snowbird, organizing training for the ski patrol, and teaching AIARE Professional Avalanche Courses.
