The son of two National Park Service Rangers, Kevin grew up in the mountains of Yosemite. His love for skiing began at the age of 4 on the storied slopes of Badger Pass Ski Resort, where he ski raced as a member of the Yosemite Winter Club. Backcountry skiing is now Kevin’s favorite way to move through the mountains, and the High Sierra holds a special place in his heart. As a student of nature, Kevin believes avalanche forecasting and education is a fundamental basis for creating a safe and inclusive outdoor community. When he isn’t skiing, Kevin may be found rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, mountain biking, or trail running. He now resides in South Lake Tahoe, where he works as a mechanical engineer for sustainable technology companies.
