Snowmobiling has always been a passion for me, it’s brought me closer to my dad and brothers and best friends. I got into snowmobiling pretty young as my dad was getting into sledding. It was in the beginning that I had my mind blown on what could be done on a sled and from then on, I’ve looked to sledding as my outlet for pulling off whatever I could imagine. After moving down to Utah for school, luck would have it that I ran into and got to be a part of the Boondockers Movie series.
Growing up in Southeast Idaho as a farm boy allowed for many opportunities to play on the snow. From a young kid, my father took me to Island Park. I can remember as a young teen trying to keep up with my father as he maneuvered through the trees, jumping creek bottoms and playing on the hills.
In the early 2000’s I started riding with the Boondockers Movie team and pushing skills each year. While being a part of the team had the opportunity to work with the Utah Avalanche Center to promote Avalanche Awareness and Safety. That helped stem a desire to become more familiar with avalanche safety and pushed myself to get more education. Now I’m an AIARE Motorized Avalanche Educator, working with other professionals in the industry to help others get the education to Ride Safe.
