Big Stick Energy – E47 –  How to be a Badass Backcountry B*tch – Tarah O’Conner

Yes, you read the title of this episode correctly. Our guest is the perfect teacher to lecture all of us on how to be our best selves in the backcountry. Tarah O’conner is a Course Leader and Instructor trainer for AIARE (American Institute for  Avalanche Research and Education), EMT and raft guide. She has been a player in male dominated industries for a hot minute. Her insights on how to create a backcountry culture that is humanizing, educational, supportive and sendy are invaluable. She is an all around great human being, honest, and down right hilarious. This episode is a gooder. Enjoy.
