Matt MacDonald is a meteorologist specializing in mountain weather. He’s been working and sharing his knowledge with avalanche professionals for the past 15 years through the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA) weather courses and various guides’ training sessions. He’s been fooled more than once by the famous “Fernie Factor” but has managed to figure out the ingredients that create the epic snow making pattern. Matt is also passionate splitboarder and CAA Level 2 graduate.
Impress your friends and better predict the “Fernie Factor” and other weather events, instead of saying “you knew that was going to happen” after the fact. Matt will let us know why Fernie is such a challenging place to forecast for and walk us through the amazing weather products hosted on the Avalanche Canada website.
