Trent Meisenheimer grew up in Salt Lake City Utah, skiing and snowboarding the Wasatch mountains since the age of two. He can be found most winter days pursuing his passion- hiking the backcountry, shredding Utah’s famous powder. He also works for the Utah Avalanche Center where he is continually seeking knowledge for snow and avalanche science. In 2009 he completed his Level One Avalanche Operations course in Canada and in 2013 went on and successfully completed the Level 2 Avalanche Operations course. He devotes himself in the winter months to avalanche outreach and education and follows his passion of the mountains. In the summer months you can find him clinging to the side of a rock wall or floating down one of the many scenic rivers in the western U.S. Trent lives in SLC and is a full time Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Utah.
