KEVIN QUINN
AGE: 36
HOMETOWN: Squaw Valley, California
TITLE: Owner and lead guide, Points North Heli Adventures
HEIGHT: 6'3"
WEIGHT: 205 lbs.
YEARS IN THE BUSINESS: 8

SPECIALTY: Along with executing trips for 48 guests each week, Quinn organizes special dawn and dusk shoots for the film crew. He sleeps three hours a night.

BIG BREAK: His nose-five times. Quinn played left wing on several AAA hockey farm teams for six years. Known as the Enforcer, he tired of fighting and in 1997 started Points North with a half-million in borrowed cash.

TOOLBOX: Quinn uses his Backcountry Access Chugach Pro shovel-jury-rigging a four-foot snow saw to the handle when necessary-to cut cornices, dig avalanche pits, clear landing zones, and build photo perches.
