The Avalanche Hour Podcast Episode 3.17 John Sykes The Avalanche Hour Podcast

As we wind down The Avalanche Hour Podcast season, I highlight a great interview with John Sykes. John is part psychologist, part guide, part educator, and part researcher. Some might say a full unicorn. John graduated recently with his Masters Degree from MSU, and has also recently started a phD program at Simon Fraser University. We chat about his life, about his work, and about his decision making in the backcountry. I reference several surveys that can be taken at the present time, and links to these surveys are below:

Mikey Bell of Southern Oregon University's Masters Thesis of How Students are using the AIARE fieldbook after Avalanche Courses:
