My Name is Michael Murphy and I am a social entrepreneur and outdoor enthusiast behind Avalanche Lab. As I quickly as I could, I got to Colorado from Texas to go to school at CU Boulder. It is here in Colorado, where I have been able to fall in love with the great outdoors and grow my passion for backcountry recreation as a whole. After Graduating with a Sociology degree and a Masters of Ski Bumming, I was ready to apply my skills learned to one of the biggest problems facing backcountry recreation (at least in winter) avalanche safety and awareness.
I look forward to working with anyone who is interested in spreading the “Know Before You Go, and Share When Your There” mission.
