Jeff Lives in Haines, Alaska for the backcountry skiing. He enjoys fostering community safety in the mountains by promoting avalanche safety at the local and state-wide level, through avalanche education, condition updates, and overall group-awareness. He specializes in tele skiing on deep powder days with poles in the backpack and riding skis up and down the mountains of southeast Alaska. He is a strong advocate for teaching others safe ways to play in the mountains. Jeff earned his AIARE ITC last year and will be out in the mountains teaching this winter.
