Sam will be returning to the Alaska Avalanche School for his third season. Last season he was able to “nerd out” in the snow to his heart's content as an intern with the Chugach National Forest Avalanche Information Center, and is also a member of the Hatcher Pass Avalanche Center Advisory Board. This season he spending lots of time looking at the snow in Hatcher Pass as a caretaker at Independence Mine.  He has been traveling in his camper van, “The Chimichanga Chaser” with his wife Jessie, across North America in pursuit of the best skiing, mountain biking, paddling, climbing, canyoneering, and yes, chimichangas since May 2017.
