Eric Balken

Photographer, Skier

A native of Salt Lake City, Eric spends most of his winter skiing in and around the Wasatch Mountains. He made a name for himself by scoring the cover of Backcountry magazine in 2012, and winning local photo and video contests like the Ski Salt Lake Shootout and the Peruvian Video Contest. Since then, he's made regular appearances in most major ski magazines. When not playing in the mountains, Eric runs the environmental non-profit organization Glen Canyon Institute.
