The Crew

Jackson Sponaugle (President)

Jackson grew up at the base of Little Cottonwood Canyon where he found his love for skiing and mountain weather. He is an atmospheric Science student at the University of Utah. You can find him skiing in a red Patagonia one piece from the 70s. 

Nathan Tarino

A lifelong skiing and weather addict, Nathan moved to from New Jersey to Salt Lake City to better serve both passions. While in pursuit of a B.S in Atmospheric Science, Nathan sampled Utah’s finest powder as often as he could. He’s trying his best to keep the low standards from his East Coast skiing days but is slowly becoming a snow snob. Regardless, you’ll struggle to find someone having more fun on the mountain than Nathan. 

 

Brittany Whitlam

Brittany grew up skiing 240 vertical feet ice sheets at her local ski resort Boston Mills/Brandywine, located in northeast Ohio. After her first trip out to ski the Greatest Snow on Earth during her sophomore year of high school, she was sold. As a lifelong lover of anything weather and ski related, she made the move to the University of Utah in 2018 to pursue both passions. When she’s not studying or forecasting for USW and the Utah Weather Center, you can find her playing in the powder at Alta or Brighton.

Andy Park

Andrew Park grew up in the rootin-tootin wild west mountains of Arizona but now calls Utah home. He masked being an adult by fighting fires for four years but is now back in school for Atmospheric Science. 
When he isn’t in school or working you can find him stalking animals in the woods with a bow.  
Andrew crecio en la Sierra Estrellas en Goodyear, Arizona. El feu bombero durante cuatro anos, pero ahora, esta aprendiendo sobre la atmosfera. Quiere hacer los pronosticos de nieve en espanol!

Julie Cunningham

Julie is another east coast transplant, so you’re welcome to laugh if you see her stuck in Utah powder. Julie grew up in Connecticut and received her B.S. in Meteorology from Plymouth State University. After falling in love with the mountains and snow (and ice) in New Hampshire, she decided to pursue a master’s in Atmospheric Science at the U. She’s wicked excited to ski and see what all the fuss is about.
