Drew Pogge owns and ski guides out of Bell Lake Yurt, near Bozeman, Montana. He is former editor-in-chief of Backcountry Magazine, and has been involved with backcountry education for nearly a decade. His experience as a writer and editor of avalanche safety topics and as an adjunct instructor of writing and communications at Montana State University make him an effective teacher in and out of the classroom. Ski mountaineering has led Drew all over the mountain West, Alaska, Iceland, and South America, and on remote expeditions to Labrador and the Yukon territories. When he’s not guiding, writing, or teaching, he loves seeking out new lines with friends.
