Peter Wadsworth started backcountry skiing when he realized that New England's reputation for icy conditions only pertained to the resorts and there was plenty of powder out there for those willing to work for it on less trampled mountains. He took his Level 1 Avalanche course in Vermont in 2009 and found the course to be the perfect intersection of his passion for skiing and his career in engineering. Peter started reading all he could on snow science and attending the annual ESAW meetings in New Hampshire. His passion for sharing the joy of backcountry skiing led him to photography. His photos have appeared in several national magazines and been used by brands such as Osprey, Backcountry.com, Cloudveil, Karhu, and Outdoor Research. In 2016 Peter moved to Alaska to pursue even snowier mountains. He completed Level 2 and Mountain Weather Forecasting with The Alaska Avalanche School and has been reaching out to every avalanche mentor he can find to learn more about how to make good decisions in the mountains. He was asked to join the Board of Directors in 2018.
