Kevin Grove

Kevin Grove has been climbing and skiing mountains for over 25 years. In addition to summiting ten peaks in the Teton Range in a single day, he once climbed and skied Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top, and the three Sisters in a period of 19 hours. Grove’s love of snowy peaks goes well beyond that of the average snowsports enthusiast. Kevin is also an Associate Professor of Physics and Engineering at Central Oregon Community College, the Science Department Chair, and board member and director of Central Oregon Avalanche Association’s Professional Observer program. Blending science with his love of the outdoors, Grove digs deep into the science of snow to learn how a given slope can either deliver pure magic or a deadly experience.
