Tuesday - November 12, 2019 (6-8pm) at Imagine Nation Brewing's The Center:
 Ski Traverses with Ian Magruder


Ian Magruder will be presenting two self-made videos about ski trips, one following the crest of Montana's Beaverhead Range and a second about completing the famous Bugaboo to Rogers Pass Ski Traverse in British Columbia, first done by Bill Briggs the godfather of North American ski mountaineering. He will present on the trips logistics, general musings about outdoor life, and the splendor we share living in this part of the world.

Ian is an avid skier from Missoula. On-the-clock he’s a crack-pot scientist - who works in water resource engineering. In his off-time he heads for the hills. Winters spent in the Alps and British Columbia exposed him to the culture of ski mountaineering and long distance ski traverses. His trips in Montana have included extended ski traverses of the Bitterroots, Beartooths, Beaverheads, Missions, Glacier, and an extended outing from Ovando to Waterton, Alberta. Most of all he is working on learning respect for the hazards of the mountains, safe traveling, and the limits of his own risk acceptance.

Join The Rocky Mountaineers for our presentations (open to the public) on the second Tuesday of each month September-May at Imagine Nation Brewing Company's The Center!
