We know Craig, we know he’s a great guy, we’ve skied the Utah backcountry with him, he’s a great avalanche forecaster, and this is just too funny – we couldn’t leave it alone…
Craig just did an interview with Salt Lake City, UT’s CityWeekly.com with this photo attached and it busted us up laughing. Here is the best part:
“My wife and I are vegans and sustain a plant-based diet and clean lifestyle, close to the earth. You can be a really fit badass just eating plants. I dispel the myth that you have to eat meat to be strong. My core philosophy is to be peaceful, live in balance and harmony with other living things and, hopefully, not hurt anything along the way. We live with three parrots [one of which is pictured above] and connecting with them helps me understand myself and the impact we have on the earth and all living creatures.” – Craig Gordon told cityweekly.com
Craig Gordon is an avalanche forecaster with the Utah Avalanche Center who telemarks, makes a turn every 3 feet, has never skied faster than 7mph in the backcountry, lives with 4 parrots, and is one helluva badass avalanche forecaster. Thanks for keeping us safe out there, Craig!
