Alan grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Greenville, South Carolina, and in spite of the southerly location he became obsessed with snow, weather, and the outdoors.
He went on to earn a B.S. in Meteorology from Metro State University of Denver in 2014 and has been working in the private sector of meteorology since 2013. Alan has forecasted for skiers all over the West and especially the Northern Rockies, including British Columbia and Alberta. When not on the slopes, Alan enjoys hiking, mountain biking, peak bagging, and spending time with his fiancé and two black labs. He lives in Jackson, Wyoming and also writes forecasts for local websites.
