This week’s guest is Doug Chabot, Director of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center. Doug is a prototypical man of the mountains - he’s put up new climbing routes all over the world, been arrested by border guards in Tajikistan, rescued countless stranded mountain travelers, and built an incredible team and invaluable community resource at the Avalanche Center.
With winter fast approaching, we talk with Doug about his approach to decision making in mountains and how anyone interested in traveling on the snow can do so more responsibly.
