And it turns out that a good ol' ski partner of mine from the SLC area may be giving a talk on human factors. Highly recommended. Here's a pic of him I took on Mt. Moran, and another dropping in where he looks like he's having a human factor moment:

Yes indeed Bob, Amy's working on getting him down here for the course! Amy met Russ at the recent Colorado Snow and Avalanche Workshop (CSAW) in Breckenridge, CO, and I think he did mention to Amy that he knows you.
