Jake Urban

The Snow Doctor

Snow and challenging weather influence every winter rescue, and Jake is the hands-on snowpack specialist assessing danger. He runs a snow science and backcountry survival training business when not serving as Deputy Director of TCSAR. This year, his wife and business partner Marilynn Davis is a new probationary member of the team. Jake’s energy and attitude spur the entire crew, and he leads the first-in “hasty teams” to emergency scenes deep in the mountains.
