Jen Reddy is a Jackson-based illustrator, avalanche educator, and member of Teton County Search and Rescue. In the late 1990s, Jen traded her 210’s and downhill suit for a pair of fat skis and a down jacket and never looked back. Her (mis)adventures on snow, rock, and dirt have shaped her teaching and art, which is filled with wit, humor, and grit. Jen is a board member of the Bridger Teton Avalanche Center Foundation, the Teton Backcountry Alliance, and is a founding member of the Teton Interagency Peer Support, which is a mental health initiative for first responders. She is also the Member Services Coordinator for the American Avalanche Association.
