A3 is fortunate to have many prominent, experienced, and thoughtful members of the snow and avalanche community on our board of directors. As part of our ongoing efforts to highlight A3 members and board when they appear in the media, we’re proud to repost this episode from the archives of The Avalanche Hour Podcast. Once you’ve listened to this episode, head to the Avalanche Hour website to listen to the rest.

In this episode from Season 3 of The Avalanche Hour podcast, host Caleb Merrill (also an A3 pro member) sat down with A3 board member Jake Hutchinson, a longtime ski patroller, forecaster, guide, and avalanche educator. In this interview, Caleb and Jake discuss tough issues in patrolling and guiding after dealing with traumatic events.
