Luke grew up in New England skiing at Cannon Mountain. His dad was an early powder hound, regularly taking Luke out of school for last-minute chases to Cannon. His love for weather and snow took him on chases to New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, and Quebec. He taught himself everything he could about weather to make these early chases pay off. Soon it was time to leave the Northeast for a place with better snow and bigger mountains.
After moving to Salt Lake City, he has continued to gain as much weather knowledge as possible and continued to expand his powder-hunting territory. Deep 18"+ overnight days have been found in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, British Columbia, Alberta, and Austria. He continued his pursuit of weather knowledge and recently graduated with a Masters in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Utah, with a focus on seasonal forecasting.
