Grizzly Creek Wildfire: Estimating Post Fire Watershed Response 

virtual presentation by:

Steve Hunter, PE, PH - Utilities Resource Manager, City of Aspen Water Department and Former Burned Area Emergency Response Coordinator & Specialist on the White River National Forest  

Before joining the City of Aspen just recently, Steve was the Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) Coordinator and Specialist on the White River National Forest. Steve still works with the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management on wildfires, including the recent Grizzly Creek Wildfire. With his extensive background as a professional hydrologic engineer and hydrologist, Steve will present a synopsis of what happens after a wildfire, and provide an overview of the three phases of wildfire restoration including:

1. Suppression repair and resource advisors (READS),

2. Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER),

3. Long-term repair and monitoring with the U.S. Forest Service, Natural Resources

Conservation Service (NRCS), United States Geological Survey Landslide Hazards Program (USGS), and researchers from Utah State University’s Utah Water Research Laboratory.

 Friendly. Knowledgeable. Local. Since 1982


In a world class skiing town like Aspen, Colorado, it seems quite difficult for ski rental shops to carve out a niche for themselves. But Incline Ski and Board Shop has done just that by offering unparalleled value, service and convenient locations.

 Incline Ski Shop has two great locations. One at the base of the Aspen Mountain Gondola in the North of Nell building (one block east of the bus stop at Ruby Park), and the other at the base of Snowmass Ski Area at the end of the Snowmass Mall, next to the town bus stops.
