Kim KircherDateline: Author/Ski Patroller
Kim Kircher has logged over 600 hours of explosives control, earning not only her avalanche blaster's card, but also a heli-blaster endorsement, allowing her to fly over the slopes in a helicopter and drop bombs from the open cockpit, while uttering the fabulously thrilling words "bombs away" into the mic. Her articles have appeared in Women's Adventure, Couloir Magazine and Off-Piste Magazine. Her memoir, The Next Fifteen Minutes, is forthcoming from Behler Publications in November 2011. She blogs at www.kimkircher.com and www.blogcrystal.com, about her job as a ski patroller.
