Utah Avalanche Center Podcast

Mar 1, 2018

Retired UAC forecaster and Jenny Lake climbing ranger Tom Kimbrough has spent a lifetime in the mountains. He attributes his ability to survive his adventures to one thing: Luck. We discussed his thinking about a lifetime of risk exposure, what it's like now seeing his only son climbing and skiing at the highest levels, and what role Buddhism has played in his life as a climber, as a skier, and as a soon-to-be octogenarian, the role of mentorship in the world of forecasting and other professions and pursuits, and what has changed over the years in snow science.
