Jason Konigsberg (CAIC Backcountry Expert)- Jason made the pilgrimage from the east coast to the Rockies in 1999. The journey started in Steamboat Springs, where the routine of skiing all day and working all night began to take its toll so Jason sought out a career that would allow him to work and ski simultaneously. Jason joined the ski patrol team at Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah in 2005. There his passion for snow safety work and avalanche forecasting developed and he joined the resort’s snow safety team. The need for more winter led Jason to spend summers in New Zealand as the snow safety officer at Craigieburn Valley ski area and the public forecaster for the Craigieburn Range. Now adjusting to life with only one winter per year, Jason spends his summers working for the US Forest Service and mountain biking as much as possible.
