Bob Athey has been hiking, skiing and snowboarding around the Wasatch mountains in Utah for the past four decades. He is known as the Wizard of the Wasatch because of his looks and his ability to navigate in backcountry avalanche terrain.

The Wizard of the Wasatch | The Backcountry Experience, Ep. 5
Welcome to THE BACKCOUNTRY EXPERIENCE. Our focus is on finding and capturing the human powered experience in the wintery mountains around the world. We've been breaking trail through deep powder, on iconic peaks, and into remote locations with dedicated individuals who understand that you get out what you put in.
