John has been with AAI since 2009. His background includes guiding, teaching and forecasting. The Tetons have been home for him since the late ‘90s. He spent the last several winters in Alaska forecasting for the Chugach National Forest Avalanche Information Center and is becoming casually addicted to snow-machining. In addition to teaching for AAI, Fitz currently works as a guide and forecaster for Valdez Heli-Ski Guides during the spring season.
