Ty Gagne – Trouble in the Presidentials: What a Mountaineering Accident Can Teach Us About Decision Making & Managing Risk

Ty Gagne – Trouble in the Presidentials: What a Mountaineering Accident Can Teach Us About Decision Making & Managing Risk

Although strikingly beautiful, Mount Washington and the surrounding Presidential Range hold the dubious distinction of having “the world’s worst weather.” The Presidential Range is also world-renowned for the challenging terrain it provides for alpinists, and as such, has been the scene of hundreds of mountaineering accidents over the years. Ty will provide an in-depth analysis of a recent tragedy on the range and extend those lessons and others learned above treeline.
