Jon Heshka and the Right of the Individual to Die Doing What We Love

Thinking before Acting – Applies to Outdoor Recreationist and the Governments

Jon Heshka has written a very thought provoking op-ed piece for the Kamloops Daily News about the true cost of skiing out of bounds and how to deal with it. See High Cost of Chasing Powder.

Jon is one of the bright minds in the outdoor recreation community. He is on the faulty of Thompson Rivers University in the Adventure Studies Program. This program is the only program that can lead to UIAGM certification in climbing, backcountry skiing, ice climbing and other programs. Undoubtedly the best college program in the world if you want to become an outdoor recreation guide or business.

I am a fan of Jon’s, so much so he is the only person not a lawyer to have an article published in the Outdoor Recreation Law Review. See Assumption of Risk and Inherent Risk in Higher Outdoor Education.

Thanks Jon. It is a great article and I appreciate your thoughts and perspective.
