Thursday we met Doug Chabot, Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center Director. From the conversation we learned about essential backcountry gear and basic avalanche saftey.

And when not on avalanche watch, Doug is also a mountain guide and climber. Doug has been on numerous climbing expeditions to Alaska, Nepal, India, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Pakistan, resulting in many first ascents and new routes. In 2011, Doug co-founded Iqra Fund, a nonprofit doing education work for girls in northern Pakistan.
