After growing up in the beautiful Adirondack mountains of Upstate, New York, Tom decided to change gears and move to Little Cottonwood Canyon at the young age of 18. Working for Alta Ski Lifts, he quickly found a deeper passion for skiing and decided to run with it. Tom has been a member of our team, along with Snowbird Ski Patrol and Snow Safety for over 25 years now. Holding a Level 1, 2 and 3 avalanche certification, EMT and OEC certifications, on top of numerous trips to ski the steep lines of Alaska, Tom has an extensive list of experience in the backcountry. He is in charge of our guiding operations, making sure the day runs smoothly for everyone.Tom resides in Cottonwood Heights with his wife, Linda, and daughter, Jess. He enjoys road biking, hiking, and climbing in the offseason. When not working in the winter, you can find him free skiing at the local resorts and passing his big mountain skills down to his daughter.
