Starting with the rocks and ski slopes of New York, Evan progressed to the ice and backcountry of Vermont for college, and accepted a job with the Utah Avalanche Center in Salt Lake City and Moab. During five years half-based in Utah, he was lucky enough to follow around some of the greats in the avalanche game, and when not on snow, climbed endless towers and splitter cracks in the desert southwest. In the middle of this time he stumbled upon a cute mountain girl from British Columbia and his bigamous love affair with her and her home province began. Evan is an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, and has spent five years on the board of directors at the American Mountain Guide Association. He and his wife Jasmin run Valhalla Mountain Touring, and look forward to cold smoke every winter and big walls in the summer.
