Bob Moore
Advisory Board

Bob recently retired from the US Forest Service after 37+ years. He spent the last 25 years as the Winter Sports Specialist on the Truckee Ranger District. Among his duties was the administration of the permits of the local ski areas (Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Boreal, Donner Ski Ranch, Royal Gorge) on National Forest lands and the avalanche forecasting program (as it was known at that time). He coordinated the military artillery used in avalanche control for Region 5 of the Forest Service (California). He usually spent much of the summer months managing large fires as an Operations Section Chief or Safety Officer across the west.

Professionally Bob was one of the early members of the American Avalanche Association, served two terms as a Director with Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue and was one of the founding members of the Avalanche Artillery Users Committee of North America. He was nominated and elected to the B-77 ANSI committee for tramways representing recreation within the Forest Service. Bob was the advisor to the Forest Service Regional Office in explosive and artillery use for avalanche control and winter sports.

In 2005 he put together the concept of the Sierra Avalanche Center which stared with Brandon as a volunteer forecaster to assist him in the forecasting duties. Previous to that Bob was a one person shop putting out avalanche advisories when the hazard was HIGH or above for 20 years. He served as the Forest Service advisor/representative to the board in the early years ensuring that Forest Service support and resources were available. He was the supervisor of the forecasters until his retirement setting the direction of the program.

He has been married for 33 years, has two grown children and 1 Golden Retriever Dog who travels with him in the backcountry. He has lived in the Truckee/Tahoe area for 38 years.

Cameron Bordner
Advisory Board

Cameron grew up in Durango, Colorado and has been a skier and outdoor enthusiast his entire life.  After graduating college, he did post-graduate work at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and during that time began ski patrolling at Eldora Mountain Resort.  As a ski patroller, Cameron’s interest in backcountry skiing and avalanche awareness, as well as ski resort safety and risk management, grew.  He attended various avalanche courses and started the avalanche dog program at Eldora, while also becoming the Director of Safety there.  While living in the Boulder area, Cameron competed on the Rocky Mountain Telemark Series and did extensive ski film and photo work.  Eventually, Cameron left ski patrolling to accept a position as a ski area risk consultant with Acordia Resort Services, a nationally recognized ski resort insurer.  It was that job that brought him to beautiful Truckee, California.  Cameron later took the Director of Risk Management position at Heavenly Mountain Resort, in South Lake Tahoe, California.

After immersing himself in ski resort risk management and liability for virtually his entire career, he decided he wanted to do more to help and defend the ski industry.  As such, he applied and was accepted to the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, where he earned his law degree. Cameron continues to live in Truckee and practices ski resort and recreation defense in Incline Village, Nevada with the law firm Lauria Tokunaga Gates & Linn, LLP. 

In addition to being an advisor to the Sierra Avalanche Center, Cameron is on the board of directors for the Tahoe Truckee Bar Association and volunteers with the Tahoe Adaptive Ski School at Alpine Meadows.  In his spare time, Cameron loves to telemark and nordic ski, mountain bike, cycle, practice yoga and surf.
