Cummings is the former captain of the US Freestyle Skiing Team and 1995 World Extreme Skiing Champion. Cummings went on to  pioneer Alaska helicopter skiing. His company, H2o Guides, is permitted to guide an area in excess of 2 million acres. His Be Snow Smart avalanche education program, a practical approach to protocols everyone can use to cut down on avalanche deaths, has won governor’s awards for safety.

The Steep Life movie chronicles Cummings’ epic first descents this spring of two enormous and steep peaks in Alaska’s fabled Chugach Range.
