Andy Anderson spent 15 summers working as a climbing ranger in Rocky Mountain National Park, on Mt. Rainier, and volunteering in Grand Teton National Park. In the winters he works as an avalanche forecaster for the Sierra Avalanche Center. Andy has been a ski patroller in the Northwest, an avalanche educator in Utah and Colorado, a volunteer forecaster in Moab, Utah, a snow researcher, an English teacher in Chile, and a climbing guide. He has over 15 years of professional avalanche and mountain rescue experience. When not forecasting avalanches, he spends his time running long races and trying to keep up with his wife and son on the rocks, in the mountains, and in the backcountry.
