Skiing Alta Magic

About me

I work at Alta, Utah in the winter and enjoy skiing Alta’s famous powder. I love to mountain bike, travel with my wife, and spend time with my two adult children.

The Best Part of My Job

Meeting new people and sharing the river and its canyons with them.

How I found OARS

Rafting trips with my father when I was young.

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

Granite Rapid stands out as one of my favorites because of the way the boats move so fast; it is astounding. A special camp of mine is at Warm Springs on the Yampa River. A combination of the view of the canyon and sound of the water is spectacular.

My Favorite Trip Memory

One of my favorite trip memories is running a trip with Don Harris and learning about his early expeditions with Norm Nevills.

My Lucky Charm

My lucky charm is a couple of juniper beads that were given to me when I was first starting to run rivers.
