About Jimmy Tart

Backed with years of experience and a passion for snow.

Although originally from Texas, Jimmy has called Park City, Utah home for the last twenty years.

He brings a wealth of experience and energy into every situation. He worked on the Park City Ski patrol and snow safety department for sixteen seasons, and now splits time between Majestic Heli Ski, Park City Powder Cats and has guided skiers in South America at Ski Arpa, Chile’s only cat ski operation.

If that wasn’t enough, he also works for the Utah Avalanche Center and Silverton Avalanche School as an avalanche educator in both the Recreational and Profressional tracks.

When he’s not on snow, Jimmy loves bikes, strong coffee and smooth chocolate.
