Forrest Coots


Forrest Coots grew up on the slopes of California’s Mount Shasta. As a competitive ski racer for many years, Forrest developed a strong, fast, and graceful style that he subsequently transferred into backcountry mountain ranges across the globe, from Peru to the Georgian Caucuses. When summer rolls around, Forrest works as a climbing ranger on Mount Shasta, and as a US Forest Service firefighter in the fall.
