Chris moved to the Teton Valley along with his wife Cathy in 2005 after spending many years skiing in the Tetons, visiting friends and building a house.
A long time software developer, he graduated from the University of Utah with a computer science degree and a PhD in powderskiing from Alta. His career has included such diverse domains as ski area planning, orthopedic pre-op planning, clinical medical records, cable TV systems, ophthalmology, and most recently a regional transportation system.
As a hobby he built and maintains snow, avalanche and weather websites for the Tetons and other western mountain areas. Chris and Cathy moved here from Park City, Utah to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle. However, between raising their young son, Nils, and being involved in many aspects of the community and the great outdoor opportunities, the relaxed lifestyle hasn’t worked out quite as planned.
