Judd Rogers is a 4th generation Wyoming native who discovered NOLS when he received a scholarship for a Wind River Mountaineering course in 1989. It must have made an impression because he has worked for NOLS ever since. Judd works as a mountaineering instructor and helped found our location in Patagonia, where he was the director from 2002 to 2010. He returned with his wife and two children to Lander where he worked for NOLS Development until 2020. Judd is an avid runner and mountain biker.
