A Question of Risk: Drew Hardesty

Wednesday, Septembre 7, 2016
In the seventh installment to our video series on risk, Utah Avalanche Center Forecaster, Jenny Lake Climbing Ranger and skier Drew Hardesty talks risk and how the euphoria of powder can change your life.

A storyteller with a sonorous voice, Drew Hardesty has spent the last 15 years forecasting for the Utah Avalanche Center. He often steeps his forecasts in haiku and metaphor, allegory and poetry, and he views risk as being collectively assumed rather than personally accepted.
