Welcome to "Stories from the Skintrack", a special four-part podcast series on the show to help you learn about avalanche and mountain safety through the personal experiences of four special guests.

I met Bruce when I was 15 years old, at the site where my half-brother’s body was recovered after his party encountered a glide avalanche during their ascent into Stairs Gulch in Utah’s Big Cottonwood Canyon. On this episode, we talk about how that shaped my desire to learn about avalanche safety, to develop my mountain sense and to always come home to my family and how I plan to honor my half-brother, Martin’s, legacy. Bruce shares his backstory, his why and his tips for people getting into the backcountry. Stories from the Skintrack are brought to you in partnership/collaboration with Backcountry.com.
