>Westward EP2: Backcountry Philosopher
from KGB Productions
Brennan Lagasse moved to Tahoe for two reasons: the skiing and the Grateful Dead, and his passion for both went unrivaled. But over a decade in, Lagasse started to feel like he was missing something in his life.
>So he got a master’s degree in environment and community and is currently pursuing a doctorate in sustainable education. He’s a professor in outdoor education at Sierra Nevada College, where he’s shaping the minds of tomorrow to be ethical and sustainable leaders of our natural world.
>That’s not all Lagasse does. He’s a ski guide with Ice Axe Expeditions, where he leads trips to the Arctic, and with Points North Heli-Adventures, where he guides yurt-based touring expeditions in remote corners of Alaska, and he’s a freelance writer, sponsored skier, and social activist.
>Oh, and Lagasse still spends more days in the backcountry than anyone.
