Drew Hardesty is an avalanche forecaster for the Utah Avalanche Center. In recent years, he’s been active not only as a forecaster but also a spokesman advising on avalanche conditions in the Wasatch Range. Locally in the Jackson, Hardesty is known for being a Jenny Lake Climbing Ranger ranger. Having roots in the Tetons, he knows the mountains well.
His presentation is expected to address the issue of growing populations skiing the backcountry. In a small area, you can have many people and how this must be taken into consideration when exploring winter terrain. He will touch on topics such as changing demographics and how things are not the same as they used to be ten or twenty years ago.
